hello, the vikings cover that period and do anglo-saxon, viking, celtic.
The vikings have a group in dorset but you would need to join with a parent because of your age here the link to your nearest vike group

Which bit? It's over half a millenium of English history.

Are you interested in early, sexy pagan period stuff, the struggle for power of the middle bit or the fairly civilised (apart from the bloody scandinavians and their garlic munching offspring) end bit?

I like all the periods for different reasons. 8)

I also like all the periods from the Roman withdrawal from Britain all the way to the Battle of Bosworth. But must admit my absolute favourite bit is the middle bit 1066 to 1216.

so essentially everything from 400 AD to 1216 then?

Can't fault you there.

I think it is fabulous and refreshing to see a 14 year old interested enough in history and the re-enactment of history, be it whatever period. Please do not be put off, in any way, by any of the comments you see on this forum. Most comments are not intended to be malicious, they are mostly made in jest, but sometimes they can seem very cutting, especially to the young.

Follow up your interest and do not give up looking for a group to join. As already stated, because of your age you will need an adult to join with you. An appropriate adult to take responsibility for your safety and security, otherwise you may have to wait a few years before most groups will accept you as an adult in your own right.

Best of luck with your search and should you decide (when old enough or if you are able to find an appropriate adult to join with you) to forget those losers known as the Saxons and consider the winning Normans then have a look at this group: www.angevin.org DEUS LO VULT

We originally took up Roman reenactment over a decade ago because of our two boys (one young teen & one under 10).
Now they have grown up they no longer join us, but look down on the misbehaviour of their embarrassing parents as we do both Roman & Medieval without them (yippee).
Growin old disgracefully - cant beat it!

Caution, dragging your parents into reenactment may seriously damage your street cred for the rest of your life.

Hi there, I'd certainly look at joining the Vike (if you can get a parent to join with you) Young people your age can train in Combat (mostly Sling work I belive) and you can also help with Water carrying and stuff on the battlefeild. So We'd deffinately keep you busy.
