Viking market at Gunnes gård, September 2016

Hello everyone!
It has been ages since my last update... again. Just too long and I'm so sorry about that. After we moved to an new apartment I haven't really had access to a computer. Therefore it has been hard editing and making these posts for you. Now I have had some days off and some motivation to make new posts, and I've been editing pictures from one and a half years back in time!! I've also decided to start writing in English since I know that many of you don't understand Norwegian.

Here are some pictures from Gunnes gård back in September 2016. We were a few people in the camp, 12 in all if I can remember correctly. Anyway, a brilliant and a lovely group of people it was!


(Warning! There are pictures of dead animals in this post. They were used for cooking purposes)



Fredrik brought his daughter Ida for the event. She is so adorable and so fun to be with. We played around, looked at the animals and sang together.















Now I want to show you some pictures of Emily. Emily is part of a group calles Andrimners Hemtagare. They travel around to different markets where they demonstrate historical cooking and other historical crafts. I have learned so many things from these guys. Emily is for example the person who taught me how to spin yarn with a spindle.

At Gunnes they demontrated how to make various dishes, how to slaughter and prepare a rooster and they prepared European hake (a fish), just to mention some. We also had a cheese table party together in the evening where we served the weirdest and most unpleasant cheeses you can imagine. I brought with me a classical Norwegian cheese called gammelost - old cheese... It was horrible. We had so much fun at this party that I forgot to take any pictures.







She scalded the rooster in boiling water to make the plucking easier. The rooster was of course already dead when she did this.




























Thanks everyone for a great market! It was so fun going to a market with only a few people I knew from before. It was truly a relaxing and cozy weekend.

Hi and welcome to my blog! My name is Tonje and I am a viking reenactor. In other words, I try to recreate the viking age as close and correct as possible. I make my own historical garments. I convey the daily life of the Viking age together with my viking group, Trondheim vikinglag. We travel all around Europe and visit viking markets. We show cooking and handcraft correct for the viking age period. If you are interested in history, archeology, handcraft of any sorts of food - this is the blog for you! Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or if you just want to say hi.
