Hello everybody!
I've been reenacting for a couple of years now, I'm a member of Morvleydh a Cornish dark age group who are a group within the Vikings society. Most of the group portray the native men of kernow however some of us want to portray Vikings and hiberno Norse. We do Cornish and Vikings pretty well, but everywhere I look for information on hiberno Norse I get stuck with little to know information regarding kit, So I thought id come and join your forum and speak to the people in the know :D
What I really want to know is what would, kit wise, distinguish a person as hiberno Norse from a Viking raider or the native inhabitants? I would assume a sort of mix of things between what we would know as Irish and Viking?

Thanks everyone

Gyrd
