Children donned their swords and shields and took part in a viking battle during a fair in Winscombe.
Winscombe Community Association celebrated its Michaelmas fair on Saturday which attracted scores of families to the annual event.
A traditional country fair was also held and talented villagers entered their arts, crafts, photography, baked goods, preserves and giant fruit and vegetables ready to be judged in the competition.
A realistic Viking encampment was set up in the village and actors put on staged re-enactments throughout the day.
Children were also able to decorate their own shields and take part in a Viking skirmish outside the community centre in Sandford Road.
Revellers also enjoyed live music, food stalls and games and the festivities were brought to a close with a barn dance.
