The Chainmail guy
Hi I'm Jerry Penner, The Chain Mail Guy. I create beautiful and functional pieces of chain mail. Some call it functional art, wearable art, authentic historical reproductions, way-out futuristic clothing, or armour for the New Age. However you refer to it, articles created by the Chain Mail Guy are of the highest quality. I make my own rings because I can't find anyone who can provide me with a consistent high-quality ring that won't scratch, pinch, or pull hair. My rings are cut so well you won't feel a burr around the face of any ring, nor will you see light through the join.

Dark Ages Re-creation Company
DARC is composed of people interested in using living history to research aspects of life in Northern Europe during the Viking Age. This is accomplished through workshops and experimental archaeology where the focus is on developing traditional skills as we create accurate replicas of period artefacts and processes. Our historic events are centered on the 'camp', where the activities revolve around 'daily life' and the interaction of carefully researched characterizations. The Company further strives to provide a resource of skilled and experienced historic interpreters and physical demonstrators to museums, schools, and educational programs.


Torvik
We are a small but growing group located in Toronto, ON dedicated to living and experiencing the history of the Viking age (793 to 1066 CE). The present day nations of Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Iceland, Germany are our main sources of inspiration, as well as many of the lands they traveled to, including North America. We are committed to learning, through individual and group research, the history, skills and crafts of the Viking age. Torvik has entertained and educated the public at cultural fairs, museums, carnivals, Highland games and private events; through talks on history and culture, workshops on crafts and combat demonstrations we bring history alive!
