Based in Norwich NANMA living historians have been providing an authentic medieval experience since 1975. We pride ourselves on our portrayal of ordinary lives in the14th century. From our craft offerings to our clothing we pay attention to the detail, sourcing period fabric and tools.
If you are interested in finding out more about NANMA and participating in the practical side of medieval history we would love to hear from you,. We are a friendly, family orientated group and you are welcome to come and have a chat.
PS – Yes, we know about the dog lead, but it’s such a good photo of us on pilgrimage to St Walstan’s shrine, to absolve our many sins !
