Who are the Ulfolc?

We are a group of people from many walks of life that share an interest in re-enactment and living history.  We meet up to train, craft and socialise as often as we can. We’re a welcoming group who are always willing to meet new people and share research.

What does the name Wessex Ulfolc mean?
Wessex was an Anglo-Saxon kingdom in the south of Great Britain, from 519 until England was unified by Æthelstan in the early 10th century.
Ulfolc is derived from the Anglo Saxon ‘Wulf folc’ or wolf folk

What do we do?

Our primary focus is on living history and re-enactment but we also research in experimental archaeology and Historical Martial Arts.

We offer lessons in early medieval culture and day to day life for schools where students can see representations of what people would have looked and lived like in the period 500-1050

How are we structured?

We are broadly top-down in organisation. This is mostly a system designed to reward those who invest the most time and effort into the organisation.

The Ulfolc is subdivided into households with each household headed by a Hlaford administered by a steward.

The household is the foundation unit for all economic, military and social activity within the Ulfolc. This is important to build strong bonds within the group in general and the household in particular.

People who are not a member of a household have a transient status that allows for them to travel between and serve different households but remain beholden to the group and its overall leader.
