Neath the Willows and rustling Poplar trees, two great rivers join force. Here, the ferrymen hail a greeting, the Italians gather to sell their wares, the Scottish Clansmen flex their muscle, the Vikings ponder trade or raid, Flemish brewers stir their mash tuns, and the artisans share their secrets.
Greetings from the Shire of Dark River! May your time with us be as joyfull and moving as the times we re-enact.
