This is a list of medieval reenactment and living history groups which represent the medieval umbrella from the common era until the renaissance, about 1600 CE. Medieval themed combat groups, HEMA, WMA, etc. who do not also participate in living history with an eye towards public interaction and education will be on a separate (upcoming) list.
If you’re not on the list I have a submission form at the bottom of the page. Contact me with a link, your time period, and location. Do not hesitate to contact me using the same form if you’re on here and do not want to be or need me to modify your entry.
