Alone of all re-enactment societies, Regia Anglorum owns a permanent site. Situated about sixty miles from central London and in a patch of secluded woodland near Canterbury in Kent. We are constructing a fortified manor house from the Late Anglo-Saxon period. This is a project that members of Regia have been working on for over 10 years. As one of our members you will have opportunities to train and feast at Wychurst as well as help us improve it
The society has a fleet of replica longships of various sizes that we row and sail on lakes, rivers and estuaries all over the UK. All our members have the opportunity to crew the boats at shows and attend training events throughout the year. No previous experience is necessary.
Regia Anglorum is the parent organisation to which Øst Centingas belongs. While we are a group in our own right, almost all of our members are members of Regia Anglorum, who provide many of our show opportunities during the year, as well as giving us access to Wychurst.
‘Regia Anglorum’ was a term used by many monastic writers in our time period, meaning
‘the Kingdoms of the English'. Today’s Regia Anglorum is a nationwide society that has members from all over the UK, as well as groups in Canada, the USA and Spain. Regia has been a group for almost thirty years, and as such many of the members have a huge knowledge base which we often draw from.
Regia Anglorum aims to recreate a cross section of life in the British Isles in a period centralising around the first millennium CE. Regia’s various groups focus on Anglo-Saxon, Viking, Norman and Welsh identities. While most groups have a cultural focus, it does depend on the show location and dateline as to which cultures we are expected to portray.
As a local group of Regia Anglorum, we follow them in matters of conduct, as well as in authenticity. This allows us to run a re-enactment group based on a long established model, while acting with as much historical accuracy as possible.
