Weorod are a small, independent group of Historical Re-enactors who specialise in providing Living History and Re-enactment displays. Based in Portsmouth, Southern Hampshire they recreate one of the most decisive eras in the history of Britain, the Early Medieval or Dark Age period. They portray the lives of the early Jutish settlers of the Migration Period, through the 6th and 7th Centuries (520-680 AD). Only the correct costume and other equipment are displayed before the public to provide an accurate representation of what early medieval life may have looked like.
