Viking warriors!

13.07.2016

Who will rule Ripa?

When the Viking warriors meet in Ribe VikingeCenter this year, it will be for a role play based on our Viking film series RIPA.

Watch the first episodes of RIPA here.

Earl Roald has overthrown Earl Bjørn and taken control in Ripa. However, Roald is an unfair ruler and crushes any riot in town. Staying at the Ring Wall just outside Ripa, Bjørn has raised an army and is getting ready to recapture Ripa. Will he succeed?

Experience the atmosphere, the story and the fighting

Come face to face with the Vikings in Ribe VikingeCenter from August 2nd until August 7th.

Join us for the daily Thing assembly and learn how the Earl decides on different matters of conflict. During the afternoon will be riots and fights in different locations in Ripa, and finally there's the big battle for you to experience.
