Interpretation

NGO "Chorna Galych" (UA)

Chorna Halych is a public organization that unites professional and amateur historians, artists, craftspeople and people who are interested in the medieval history and culture of Ukraine, and its role and place in the European area. Therefore, we are engaged in research, recreation and implementation of everyday life, cuisine, art, crafts and military matters of the Galician and Volyn lands of the Kingdom of Rus in the 13th and 14th centuries. The main tasks of the organization are social development and education.

Large part of our activity is interaction with youth, increasing their level of interest in history by involving them in interactive classes and training in medieval swordplay.
We present our activity mainly with lectures, interactive lessons of living history, thematic events that take place in educational institutions or archaeological (open-air) museums.

Gladiatorenschule Trier e.V. - Lvdvs Treverorvm (DE)

Based on the current archaeological findings and the knowledge of various martial arts, we reconstruct, train and demonstrate the gladiator fights of antiquity.

We believe that gladiatorship was anything but an undemanding slaughter. It was a martial art with the presentation of Virtus "Roman virtues" at the highest level. This level is our goal! We have the claim, to learn what the art the gladiator was about and strive to perfection when it comes to being a roman fighter. It is our intention to teach the knowledge we accumulate - cause we believe, that only be understanding our past, we can forge our future.
