Trader’s Market

To compliment the Living History Section of our site, Historic UK is proud to launch a brand new Traders Market. Featured within this directory are the contact names and details of traders and service providers who help to bring history to life through the goods and services that they provide. To assist browsing we have divided the Market into four discrete categories:

Within the Armoury category you can find craftsmen creating hand forged arrowheads through to suppliers of 19th century siege cannon. Our Clothing and Outfitters category includes costumers, shoe makers, corset makers, etc. In the General Store browse through the suppliers of herbal potions, manufacturers of period furniture, silver jewellery and even medieval whistles and flutes. The Service Providers category features small historical groups available for public and school displays, as well as event management companies that can help to organise your film or TV shoot.
