The Original History Boars!

We Take History Seriously But Have Fun Bringing it to Life


Most of our members live in Devon, Somerset or South Gloucestershire but we travel over most of the country to attend events. We are both a non-profit making & non-political group and Hildsvin is an active member of “The Vikings!” Re-enactment society.

Our aim is to provide an educational and entertaining portrayal of this tumultuous period in our nation’s past, with equal emphasis on daily life as well as the more warlike aspects of the age. Whether you are looking for Vikings or Anglo-Saxons, you will discover that both cultures are equally represented by us.

We have an award winning reputation for the high standard of our presentation, attention to detail & historical accuracy.

We meet regularly (if there isn’t an event scheduled) to improve the combat skills of our warriors and broaden the the already extensive skills and knowledge of our non-combatant members. We also meet through the season as a full group, with our families and children, for whole weekends combining Living History with combat training and lots of socialising. You will find us at shows and historical events not only throughout the South west of England but also across the country with occasional forays to events abroad.

Take a look at our Events page if you want to come to see us at a show, or if you are interested in booking us then you can find out more on our Booking page. We also undertake Schools visits and there is more information on the Education page.
