They recreate history
In the summers of 2011 and 2013 several hundred people from different countries gathered in Visby on Gotland to reenact the battle in 1361. But it was not just all about the battle itself. Craftsmen of different fields worked innumerous hours to create clothes, weapons and armours true to the era.
In the menu on the right you can watch a sequence from the documentary film “The Reenactors”, about the preparations and implementation of Battle of Wisby 2011. You can also see smiths who make a helmet and a chain mail shirt as well as how a “medieval” fabric is woven.
