is a medieval re-enactment group whose founding
members have ben re-enacting since 1985. The group
was started by James (Jim) Adams (AKA King James)
in a Scout hall in Greenacre, NSW in the mid 1980s.
Under Jim's leadership the group flourished and
was known for many years as the Medieval Martial
Arts Association of Southern Sydney (MMAASS).
1985 to 1995 Jim introduced many young enthusiasts
to Medieval Re-enacting, some of whom have gone
on to establish their own independent groups. In
1995 Jim's original trainees took the step of independence
and rallied under the name "Danelaw".
Danelaw incorporated in 2002 to achieve a stable,
sustainable structure and solidarity amongst its
members. Since that time Danelaw have maintained
a close association with Jim and and his associated
groups as well as the greater Australian Medieval
