“Ting “, is the Old Norse name for the governing assembly all free people. They would gather in their communities to make law and to decide cases. But a Ting was not all politics. A Ting was often a multi-day festival. There were musicians, and entertainers. Merchants set up booths for their wares, Brew masters brought barrels of ale and mead.

There is a a lot of work to be done. But it is all great fun. Many Volunteers return year after year. There is excitement, fellowship, and a fun experience like no other. Great adventure, and good times, and excellent people. One never know what may happen at Ting.  During a Ting, marriages were arranged, alliances were crafted, news and gossip exchanged and friendships forged and nurtured.
