About Dark Age Crafts

Dark Age Crafts is a living history trader producing hand-made historical musical instruments from the early medieval period.  Our current focus is on the north European lyre, using our own designs based on archeological finds from the British Isles and northern Europe.   Our main design is in the Anglo-Saxon style, epitomised by historical examples such as the Sutton Hoo and Prittlewell instruments.

On this site you can see and hear examples of our instruments, and find details of the next events we will be trading at.
