Re: Stone-Iron Age

You could also do a 'mock' burial, I always do this when doing neolithic school visits. You'll need a few objects however, have one of the pupils lay on the floor and the others pick objects they think would be relevant for the next life. Also clothing and what they would use for clothing and how th...

I do knapping and neolithic, and am doing a lot of school visits about this era. No idea of any groups that do it as a 're-enactment' and the only people I know that do this very under rated period work as sole demonstrators/traders .......... there is a lot of interest in it from the public when yo...

Many thanks to all those who have messaged me about this.

Re: Period Maille

Can be regional variations (Europe) and manufacturer, mostly flat and half round wire for links with wedge riveting, complete round wire rings seemed to re-emerge slightly about 1500 (although they hadn't disappeared completely prior to that) ......... bit more time consuming to make the half round.

Re: aventail

Use flat head steel or brass rivets and drill the lace (or wire) hole in them. Drill the hole just far enough along to give you enough room for the leather strip and also the threading material - again either wire or lace. They don't twist or turn once the leather of the aventail is fitted over them...
