Last Sunday, my children and I wandered through a chilly field, surrounded by vikings. Everywhere we looked, people walked by in leather armor, black painted eyes, and swords. One imposing fellow had a real bear skin draped around him as a cape (though since the Eurasian Brown Bear had been mostly hunted out by the time of the vikings, I think his depiction was more enthusiastic than historically authentic).
And where would my family run into a gathering of vikings in Indiana? Viking Fest 2022!
Then after an afternoon of wandering the shops, buying way more jewelry than we needed, and listening to Pictus perform, we headed home to finish the day with a bottle of mead. It was a lovely “everyday adventure”!
