"History never surrenders..."
Hargus Montgomery, novelist and explorer
Welcome and thank you for visiting our website! Historia Vivens (from Latin "historia", history, and "vivens", living) is a web project devoted to introduce and narrate the enchanting world of Living History, Open-air museums and Folklore with a special focus on Europe and its unique historical, archaeological, cultural and natural heritage.
Join us and see how History and Traditions become alive in a variety of historical festivals, local celebrations and folk customs thanks to Living History, Heritage Interpretation, Reenactment, and Experimental Archaeology practices. Such an immersive time travel experience allow us not only to relive the daily atmosphere and life from different ages and countries, but also to reconnect with our cultural and spiritual roots.
Historia Vivens seeks to provide quality and accessible information through dedicated and varied web resources with the aim to help to further promote and enhance Living History and Heritage Tourism in Europe. We wish to contribute as well to raise the awareness of the public about the need to preserve the unique wealth of the European folk traditions and cultural identities at risk of extinction.
We hope you will enjoy this web-journey as a pleasant experience that would inspire you to go beyond the mere glare of the screen. The Heritage around and inside us, just like Life itself, is an amazing and endless adventure to live first-hand and experience with all our heart and senses. Thank you for your visit and interest!
