War cries will be heard at Stonham Barns this weekend as historical re-enactment groups visit Suffolk.
One group is even marching from Hadleigh to join in with the hotly anticipated event, History Alive.
One of the highlights of the weekend-long event will be a battle between Vikings and Saxons, which will close the event each day.
Families will also get to travel back in time to the American Civil War.
Ormsgard Dark Ages Enactment is marching 30km from Hadleigh, the alleged burial place of a Viking King, to take part in one of the re-enactment battles.
As part of their epic hike, the group will sleep in whatever shelters they can carry and cook food on a campfire.
They will arrive in Stonham Aspal on Friday night, ready for their first battle on Saturday.
