Norseland's "Fall Thyng"
September 22nd & 23rd, 2007

Fall Thyng is an annual Norseland event that ACC was honored to participate in.

Norseland is Viking reenactment group. Although they are not part of the SCA they do often attend some SCA events, and compete in heavy weapons tournaments. Thus they have often have a similar "look and feel" to the SCA.

But in truth, their fantastic hospitality and Norse focus give them a distinctive atmosphere that is all their own. I hope to do more events with them in the future.

This was the ACC encampment. It drew rave reviews from many Norselanders for it's authenticity.

While walking through the woods from encampment to encampment I stumbled upon an old sconce.

The pond provided plenty of opportunity for the kids to play and pictures

 

 

The fire gets a good start.

Nearly the all of the Norseland particpants are in attendance to watch the memorial pyre.

By the end of the pyre this was all that was left.
