Battle of Wisby 1361 / 2011 - the video!

Post by Lena »

Just wanted to share a newly uploaded video (50 min) on the making of Sweden's first large battle re-enactment in 2011, the battle of Visby. Re-enactment in Sweden is mainly focussed on crafts and minor battles (rarely re-enactments of historical battles), so this was a big thing. Perhaps one of you were there?

The subtitles are ok. There are a few errors, but I think you'll get their meaning anyway.

You have three thumbs!? Or did you borrow one of your neighbours'?

I'd love to go back to Visby and take part in the event. But first I need to make a period-appropriate outfit - all mine are too early...
