This event is unique in its kind. It only happens once a year in Belgium that all historical associations are assembled in the form of a multi-period camp. During this camp we make a journey through World History. This happens in an encampment built in the style and the tradition of the presented period.
Some of the participating periods are: Celts, Romans, Vikings, Early Middle-Ages, Late Middle-Ages, Renaissance, Scottish Highlanders, 18th Century ‘Bourgeoisie’, Woodland Indians, French and Indian War, Colonisation of the Americas, Napoleon, Trappers and Plain Indians, Civil War, Cowboys, 1st and 2nd World War, Vietnam War, etc.
In addition there are all sorts of demonstrations in this historical framework. Not only is camp-life of the related period presented, but also the matching trades, such as white and Indian people's handicrafts, pottery, woodwork, forgery, to mention only some, are presented to the general public. Finally we demonstrate historical battles, tournaments, drill exercises and duels.
Extent of the event
During our event we can count on around 1000 re-enactors or participants in historical costumes, as well as about 400 tents to give an as realistic image as possible of the different periods of world history.
