The Vikings

The Vikings were the warlords and warmongers of the Norse society from Scandanvia.
This part of the world experienced influences from both the violence of the Vikings, and the integration of the Norse, who brought skills of more advanced farming and society to the area. The peoples who developed out of the melding of the indigenous world and that of the new influences were called the GalGael.
There is a new (Summer 2018) group forming in the area to explore more of this in a North Argyll Context - they are keen to learn about the living history of the Norse/ Galgael as well as the accurate martial art of Viking warfare .. check out Oban Reenactment on facebook
