Egdehirden: Guardians of Viking Traditions in Agder
We focus on safety and respect in combat. Through our training sessions, we delve deep into the strategies and weapons used throughout history. We focus mainly on Vikings, but also train with later weapons, following historical fencing manuals.
Egdehirden is actively involved in various reenactment events throughout Norway, providing a glimpse into Viking battles. We fight using authentic Viking weapons and armor and demonstrate how shield walls were used to repel attacks.
