Historia

Historia is a multi-period, multi-cultural and multi–focus collective of re-enactors, enthusiasts, artisans and museum professionals working together to share knowledge with the public and each other.

Projects include recreating traditional skills, experimental archaeology, living history, workshops, lectures and museum displays on a variety of topics from late Antiquity to the pre-Industrial era.

The majority of the members of Historia are re-enactors of many years standing and several are active in the field historical education in museums, archaeology and publication in print and electronic media. Their interests are diverse, ranging from late antiquity through to the 17th century across a broad cultural and geographic range from Europe and North Africa through the Levant to Transoxiana.

Topics encompass costume and fashion, cuisine, music, experimental archaeology and martial arts in order to bring a greater understanding and appreciation of our collective cultural heritage.
