Class Description: Thursday at Lilies War, have we got a day for you! A Day in the Life of a Viking (An Exercise in Speculation) We, Mistresses Jorunn, Brialen and Ylva, have reserved the Grand Pavilion from 9 to 5 that day for demos, classes, and general discussion of what life was like for the Norsemen (and women). You may be thinking “Well, that covers a lot of time and territory!” and you would be absolutely right of course, but our goal is to include all of the eras and places that people are interested in, and inspire some critical thinking about what we hear and read. And why are you getting this personal invitation? Because we think that you have knowledge to impart! Whether you can only join us for an hour, or are able to spend the entire day, we would love to have your presence. Could you teach a formal class? Lead a discussion on topics which go beyond the basics? Share your experimental archeology results, or even do some experimentation right then and there? Help cook and sample some possible Viking foods? Come and have some fun and ask questions that could open some eyes? Here are a few of the ideas that we came up with; I’m sure that you can think of many more: Cooking, weaving, wire weaving, basic clothing, what is the meaning of the figurines that have been found?, clothing embellishment – what can we actually prove and what is wishful thinking?, how to form and articulate an informed opinion based on research, who do you believe when the experts disagree?, shoe making, woodworking, furniture – what is plausible?, games, armor, what are the dangers inherent in using the sagas as “proof”?, pottery, naalbinding, animal husbandry, medicine, cleanliness, tents, beads and jewelry, brewing, magic. If you have a class, demo, theory, or questions about these or other Norse subjects, we invite you to join us for as long as you care to hang out. If you have a specific demo, discussion or class that you can lead and would like to have it appear on our schedule, please contactHer Excelleny Ylva We expect that the day will have a few structured aspects, as people do have other things to do, but much of it will also be free-flowing as one topic leads to another, and groups with similar interests split off. This extravaganza will be listed in the A&S schedule and advertised via the War web site and Facebook page, but we hope that this communication will get people thinking about what they might have to share. Feel free to pass this along to anyone else that might be interested!
