I portray a norseman from 1066 AD in the Army of Harald Hardrada at the Battle of Stamford Bridge. I strive to recreate the culture and habits of the viking people. I practice Rune-Craft, Armor-Craft and Leather-Craft. I am an avid student of the Havamal, the Saga's and the Edda's. I am the Lord and Master of the Hall of Raudth Hammar (Red Hammer) and a co-founder of the Great Hall Troth-Heim.
