Ordalies has participated in writing a book about the Germanic peoples, co-written by Guntram MUNIER and Pierre-André Kanapé, two of our members. Published by Errance in June 2013 in the Living History collection, it shows the evolution of military equipment of the Germanic peoples from the first to the sixth century AD. 3 years were required for its writing during which we participated as extras in the illustrations, showing off our equipment.
Ordalies is also a collaborative work with our partner D'Artkaci.
Specialised in manufacturing facsimiles for reenactors, many museums have used their services to expose archaeological reproductions:
- The Museum of Nanterre including a Merovingian set of inlaid and gilt buckles, and a sword;
- The Museum of Iron in Jarville la Malgrange, as part of craft demonstrations and creating educational material for school uses;
- Intervention for Pro Aventico (museum of Avenche in Switzerland) as part of studies on inlaid beds from Roman times;
- The Archaeological Service of Douai, concerning the reproduction of an inlaid belt buckle and informative signs for schools and the public.
Ordalies also appears in the specialist magazine "Champ de bataille" No. 51, entitled "Bataille d’Andrinople".
