Welcome to The Spears of Andred

A Viking re-enactment group in East Sussex

Welcome traveller. We are the Spears of Andred – a hardened group of Viking mercenaries whose goal is to re-enact the battles and history of the dark ages. Based in Sussex in the ancient forest of Andredswood, we recreate Viking, Saxon, Norman and Celtic battles and culture from the 8th – 11th century.
From living history encampments and craft demonstrations to skirmishes and major conflicts like the Battle of Hastings – no battle is too small. So join us for a while and relive a period of our history that has shaped modern Britain.
