<b>Välkomna till Battle of Hisingen 2012!</b>

<i>Harald Hardrada, the last great Viking king in Scandinavia, fell at the battle of Standford Bridge in 1066 during an attempt to conquer England. Before this he had demonstrated his power against local chieftains and farmers in Norway. The sagas tell of how he cowed the farmers of Hisingen with his power during one of his many military campaigns – an unconfirmed tale among many others.

After Haralds death Sven Estridsson ruled as king in Denmark and became progenitor of a new line of kings in this country. The border between these two kingdoms in western Scandinavia was now set to Götaälv. The river formed a natural border with as few possibilities for border feuds as one could ask for.

When at war the attack came by sea, at land any hostilities was kept to a minimal by the big forest bordering to Götaland, which pressed the coastal zone between Fjärre in Halland and the great river into a thin corridor. Due to their domination at sea the Norwegian kings could claim the easy sailed waters at Skagerak and they also secured their grip on the important northern outlet of Götaälv, between Inland and Hisingen.

Our story is focused on two small forces struggle for control of this strategically important location. One chieftain from Norway and one chieftain from Denmark make battle for their kings’ control of the area.</i>

The area is located on the island Hisingen NW of Gothenburg (Göteborg) at Askekärrsvägen. The GPS coordinates 57.83979, 11.91133 (or N 57° 50.387', E 11° 54.680' depending on what system your running). You can check the location on google maps (maps.google.com).

The easiest way to find the area is by using Freeway E6 from Göteborg (E6 towards Oslo), and leave the freeway at Jordfallsmotet, Exit 85. Take a right and follow the sign towards Torslanda (on Kongahällavägen) after about 5 km, make a right turn onto Gullövägen, and from here follow the signs.

OK, jag frågade mest för jag visste inte om det var en "publik" tillställning. Men jag har mailat Martin E också.

Det går alldeles utmärkt att komma och hälsa på! Det är ju ingen marknad i vanlig mening utan en fightinghelg men jag är säker på att det kommer finnas lite annat att titta på också.

Om inte annat så finns jag på plats tillsammans med frugan om du vill prata fynd! :)
