Ladoga - These are our kind of people. The Club was founded in 2001. The main activity of the club is a complex reconstruction of material culture .The majority of them specialize in slavonic antiquity with the emphasis on Novgorod. They are also interested in the history of Kievan Rus and relations between the Rus and Scandinavians, as well as with the other nations of Eurasia during the 9th - 11th centuries. This St. Petersburg club's pages are in Russian. Check out the line drawings ! An excellent resource to start reproducing your kit. These are taken from hard to find Russian archaeological journals and books. Excellent work guys!
Nasledie Predkov (736)
Nasledie Predkov - Ancestral Heritage - This club is one of the strongest in Russia and possibly the most strongly represented in Moscow at inter club tournaments. They specialize in reconstructions of the culture of Russia and of its neighbours during the 9th - 10th centuries with an emphasis on military activity. They have a great web site even though it is all in Russian. It is really worth investigating the site and following the links for the line drawings and photos of archaeological finds, their club photos and their links to other groups. So what if you can't read Russian. The pictures and diagrams are magnificent. Dr Peter Beatson's article on shields appears here ...in Russian.
