The Vikings of Bjornstad is a living history and educational group, concentrating on the Viking age - from 793 through 1066 AD. The group strives for an authentic presentation of the culture, weapons and crafts from a thousand years ago, including Viking, Norman and Anglo-Saxon re-enactment.
Bjornstad has been filmed twice for History Channel productions and has provided extras, weaponry, clothing and props for several independent film projects. Bjornstad’s members work with educational and Scandinavian heritage groups to provide a balanced view of one of history’s most fascinating periods and cultures.
Bjornstad covers the geographical area of California centered on the extended San Francisco Bay Area, currently north to Santa Rosa and Fort Bragg, east to Stockton and south to San Jose.
The group leader is Jack Garrett,
