QUEST FOR VALHALLA

The gods will walk among us as the Barony of Bjornsborg does (one of the things) it knows best- going Viking! Join us for a day of raiding (heavy fighting), looting (A&S competition), hunting (archery), and of course, decorating the skulls of your enemies (skull bedazzling). Young Vikings won't be left out- there will be activities throughout the day, including a children's tournament. This website will be updated with additional information closer to the event. But we look forward to seeing you feasting with us in Valhalla.

As a tribute to Ragnar Ulfgarsson, called Morkwulf, there will be word fame and a prize to the warrior who best displays the actions of a Norse Hero during the fighting at Quest for Valhalla. Heroic actions especially during the Valhalla tournament will be closely observed. Sponsored by The Ansteorran Longship Company.
