Re: Festival of History..

I think this has been coming a while now, if you look at the wider Heritage 'Industry' the signposts have been there. Howard Giles even presented to Nares on this subject a few years back. Big Events are passing into the west with the Elves. They are simply too much financial risk, on a single weeke...

Need to update that, we successfully had it added to the battlefields register last year.

Welsh television has been waking up to this 'forgotten' battle too - have been working with a production company on research and filming

Whilst not to dilute your research then could I suggest you take a look at 1469 Edgecote? Arguably the darkest day in welsh history, and pivotal in allowing bosworth to happen

I'm going to be charitable and assume the vendor has come up with the best word to describe the item as opposed to a direct parallel from text. Is there any evidence for such an awning however?

Has anyone seen any evidence for this sort of awning? http://www.famwest.co.uk/uk/period-tents-and-medieval-pavilions/baldachin/ A baldachin to me is something different, that’s an indoor canopy above a throne or similar.

40,000...? Did I read that correct? Is that over the weekend or per day? That is... A lot. I'd like to see the sums that make it viable. The biggest reenactment I was involved in was hasting 2006, which from memory had 13,000 public per day. That was in the south east, and London alone has as big a ...

Fancy a walk with a difference? Tomorrow (26th July) is the anniversary of the 1469 Battle of Edgecote, which took place a few miles northwest of Banbury. Members of the Medieval Siege Society will be walking the battlefield, and placing red and white roses at the site of the heaviest fighting. Come...
