Miedziana Góra XIII

On 17-18 September we took part in the XIII Historical and Educational Picnic in Miedziana Góra (near Kielce, central Poland), organised by the Historic Club HIRD. The idea of the event was to introduce the wider public to the early medieval culture of Slavs, but also Vikings. This is because archaeological traces show close commercial and military contact with Slavic settlements of the tenth and eleventh centuries. The event was rich in fantastic presentations of medieval crafts, music, dancing and fighting.
