As the final winter winds blow, and last of the winter snow melts away, Odin rises to search for his ravens Huginn & Muninn. All across the lands of Midgard, Huginn & Muninn fly to and fro, bringing with them the knowledge of the world to inform the mighty Odin. Riding north on the current of the warm spring air, Huginn & Muninn return to Odin bearing knowledge of the lands to the south. Odin listens intently as Huginn & Muninn relay a tale of a land to the south known as France with their fortified city of Paris.
Inspired by the stories of his ravens, Odin grabs his spear Gungnir and mounts his eight legged stead, Sleipnir to ride off to present a quest for glory to the legendary King Ragnar. Inspired by the visit from Odin, King Ragnar readies his armies to lead a siege of Paris along the River Seine. At the head of his fleet guided by the wings and eyes of the wise Huginn & Muninn, King Ragnar charged his long boat with only the finest fighters, fencers, archers, axe throwers and artisans. Will you be among the Vikings leading the siege against Paris? Or will you be on the side of the French defending the city walls?
H&M features Heavy List, Archery, Fencing, Thrown Weapons and Arts and Sciences.

A&S Exhibitors at Huginn & Muninn!
Here is a downloadable exhibit card to go with your piece, as well as a couple sample pictures of what it might look like filled out. PLEASE DO NOT PUT A NUMBER IN THE BIT UP TOP. That’s for me and my own reference. Do, please, be sure to fill out any and all other important information, including checking the diamond at the bottom if you wish to display your piece but don’t wish to be entered in the competition.
Print out this card, fill it out, and get it to me by 11AM on the day of the event, June 10th. I will also have blank cards at the event, should you misplace or be otherwise unable to fill one out ahead of time.
A report IS NOT REQUIRED to accompany your piece. However if you are competing with a performance piece, you are asked to please have something– a printout, a writeout– something tangible to display so that people can vote without your having to sit in one spot all day.
Any questions, please ask, and I can not WAIT to see what pieces will be in the Ravensbridge Museum of History! –Gormlaith An Malagenteach
A payboard will be available for snacking or outright full lunches.
