Throw axes, drink mead
Reenactment groups make Norway Hall their home as Vikings and Norse-folk set up camp to display traditional arts and crafts, skills, and home-ways. At the weapons range, visitors may try archery, plus spear- and axe-throwing. Two stages showcase local and international bands. List-field features Viking warriors engaging in battle with axe and sword. Experts educate about Viking armor, weaponry and battle techniques. Enjoy honey wines (mead) as brewers of mead and beer share their knowledge of the craft. Learn more about the history of Norway and Scandinavia, genealogy, and Norse cooking.
Bull in a China Shop
Mary Woolley is the bull. If a man is only interested in headless women, she says, ”he should go to France.” (She was president of Mount Holyoke College from 1900 to 1937. She and fellow educator and partner Jeanette Marks were determined to change the status of women, to “teach them to challenge everything.”) The china shop is everything that stands in their way.
Dumplings and dragon dance
