Darrell Markewitz of the Wareham Forge has built a reputation for his museum grade reproductions and replicas of artifacts from the Viking Age.
Starting with his original work on the 'Norse Encampment' in 1992, he has produced a wide range of objects. Past assemblages have included some 175 objects for the Viking Encampment living history program for Parks Canada at L'Anse aux Meadows NHSC. He produced replicas and reproductions for the educational kits and hands on programs accompanying the exhibits 'Vikings - North Atlantic Saga', and 'Full Circle- First Contact'. His most recent project was creation of 'the World of the Norse', which included three complete 'room settings' with hundreds of reproduction objects.


The Wareham Forge offers a limited number of detailed replicas of specific Viking Age artifacts for the re-enactor (or Living History Museum). These specific items have been selected for authenticity and utility, based on past experience presenting the Norse to the general public - and daily living.
