Helotes Festival Grounds
12210 Leslie Road, Helotes TX 78023
Viking Invasion/Texas Jomsborg Elag will be returning this year to the San Antonio Highland Games! There will be an authentic encampment with fight demonstrations, crafts and artifacts, and information on the Viking history of the northern British isles. Did you know, for instance, that the entire British royal family descends from William the Conqueror, the Duke of Normandy? William himself was a Norman and descendent of Rollo (yes, that Rollo from TV’s Vikings), a viking raider from Scandinavia who was known as Hrolf (or Ganger-Hrolf: “Hrolf the walker”) prior to his conversion from heathenry to Christianity when he became the first ruler of Normandy. The United Kingdom is today ruled by the descendants of vikings!
Don’t miss this exciting event — come out and discover what Vikings have to do with the history of Ireland and Scotland!
