Middelaldercentret 2016

I början av juli var Carnis inbjudna att delta i firandet av danska Middelaldercentrets 25-årsjubileum. Centret är en fantastisk plats med hus, grejer, djur och andra häftiga grejer - allt medeltida. Jag har velat åka dit i flera år nu och det här kändes som det perfekta tillfället för ett första besök.

At the beginning of July we in Carnis were invited to join in the celebrations of the 25th year anniversary of the Medieval Center (Middelaldercentret) in Denmark. The center is a fantastic place with houses, animals and other awesome things, all medieval. I've been wanting to go there for several years now and this seemed like the perfect first visit.

Jag har redigerat mina foton från eventet och sorterat ut de bästa, men jag kunde inte välja bland dem sen så det här inlägget innehåller alla bra bilder. Det innebär att det här kommer bli ett väldigt långt inlägg. Carnis har lite fler foton av Tom Gagner utlagda på sin hemsida tillsammans med dessa, så kika in på http://carnis.org/pictures/events/middelaldercentret-2016/

I edited my photos and sorted out my best ones, and for this post I couldn't really decide which ones I'd use. That means that you get all of them, so this will be a very long post. Carnis has some more photos taken by Tom Gagner on our website together with these, so go and take a look at http://carnis.org/pictures/events/middelaldercentret-2016/

Here is Carnis in front of "our" house; The ropemakers house. Photo: Tom Gagner

Vi hade repslagarhuset till vårt förfogande och repslagarfältet till våra tält. Det var ett väldigt trevligt ställe att bo på! Vi hade en småbarnsfamilj som bodde i huset och resten av oss tältade. Det var en fantastisk samling människor på eventet och jag fick ett gäng nya vänner. Precis så det ska vara på ett sånt här event.

We had the ropemakers house and the ropemaking field for our tents. A very nice place to live at! We had a small childrens family who stayed in the house and the rest of us tented on the field. The gathering of people at the place was fantastic and I made some new friends. Just as you should at these events! 

Nu är det dags att sluta skriva och visa er mina foton - det här inlägget kommer bli lång nog ändå. Varsågoda!

Now I'll stop writing and show you my photos - this post will be lenghty as it is. Enjoy!





Tiny socks in the making for tiny feet <3

Our camp was visited by a nasty pirate

Luckily we had someone to fight him!

Åsa! We owe you so much! Thanks for cooking for us!

Did I say nasty? :D






Det hände lite grejer som gjorde att jag behövde ha lite fancy kläder på mig. Min nya krappfärgade hätta premiäranvändes!

There were some things going on which accuired me to wear some fancy clothing. The new madder-hood was used for its first time!



We gave the pirate his judgement


And on the other side of the water was the rest of the town



The pirate seem to have escaped us and continued his game

A try to selfie with the geese!


Even though they were very cute we didn't want them in camp when we were cooking. 


A much needed after-dinner-nap in our tent


The sky and the town gave some very nice views


Riku in his awesome kirtle

Lovely Saara and Mervi

*Not aware of the camera at all* - Strikes epic pose

Nettan makes dinner



Our camp from the other side

The pirate was revealed to live in town







Dearest Cathrin with our camp in the background


Hoods are great for many things

Of course we had to take some manuscript photos. 

And Herjolfsnes-garment photos - same fabric!

Different fabric - same model (D10584)

Well, you can't be serious at all time



Proper reenactors there!

I was trying to capture the sky matching Chrissies dress...

But I had to do it in two takes.

This photo <3 Looking very happy!






Then on the last day we all needed to look sharp for the festivities


Including me!

Trying to show off my shoes....

Carnis populating the town

Here it looks like Jacob knows how to handle his dagger

Now it is our turn to taking over your home ;) The pirate wasn't that happy about it

Jacob temporarily looses his way with the dagger? It is not supposed to go into *your* belly!

That's better! 


Mervi in her epic dress.

Woho, we got to sit behind the Queen!

Cathrin and Pamela gets to end this long post. 

Ett stort tack till arrangörerna! Vi ser väldigt mycket fram emot att komma tillbaka!

Big thank you to all of the organisers! We can't wait to get back!
