The Household
Anglo-Norman Living History

The Household is a premier high medieval re-enactment society that offers an immersive living history experience, engaging
combat displays, and a large authentic encampment bringing this fascinating period of history to life.

The Household's encampment represents an array of medieval crafts and characters and is an interactive introduction to medieval life for all ages. From soldiers and knights to monks and cooks, The Household represent a typical itinerant household under a noble personage at various times during the Anglo-Norman period, 1066-1216. This period covers the end of the Viking Age in England, the Battle of Hastings, the Anarchy of King Stephen's reign, King Richard the Lionheart, the Legend of Robin Hood, and the sealing of Magna Carta.

The Household's displays are tailored to each event. Our combat displays can include demonstrations of different weapons and armour, knightly tournaments or a unit of professional soldiers as part of a larger event. The Household's large authentic encampment is also tailored to each client's requirements and includes opportunities for handling replica equipment, craft demonstrations, and costumed interpreters.
