In the summer of 844 A.D., the Norse raided al-Andalus, sacking Cadiz,
Lisbon, Medina Sidonia and Capturing Seville. For a little over a month the
Norse held Seville before Emir ‘Abd al-Rahmān II (r. 822–852) took back his
glorious city, from a Norse army of about 15,000, with reinforcements from
his Calvary. Many vigorous battles were fought from the river and over land
with sword and bow.
The Shires of Standing Stones and Wyvern Cliffe invite one and all to join
us in recreating this momentous meeting of Cultures.
