During the Summer, I had the opportunity to visit Norway during a rare heatwave. Norway is a beautiful country and while travelling along the Fjords, by chance I came across a Viking festival. This particular festival is a recreation of a viking village and depicts the life of the people during the era of the Vikings. Wooden constructions are built and the inhabitants are dressed in the clothes of the time.
I was interested to see forged work taking place. The heat required to shape the metal was created by using bellows and charcoal and was fascinating to see.
I also had the opportunity to see how food was cooked using a cauldron, in this case it was porridge.
There was a stall producing Viking medicines made from herbs and plants. The atmosphere of the village was very pleasant and welcoming and reminded me a little of festivals that take place during current times.
