The 13th Realm
The 13th Realm are re-enactors who recreate European 13th century. Their family friendly demonstrations and activities allow guests to have first-hand experiences with this wonderful part of our past.
The Jacobite Rebellion (1745-1746), under the command of Prince Charles Edward Stuart, was the last attempt to reclaim the throne of Great Britain & Ireland. This rebellion threw Scotland into such turmoil that it effectively ended the Clan system as it had existed for centuries. As a confederation of living historians, Clann of the Wolfe comes together each year to recreate this period in history and bring it to life for ourselves and the general public.
