Re: Museum Theatre

That's not what he's saying Henri. He's doing a degree in performance into which Living History and historical interpretation falls and just wants some experience. There are interpretation degrees out there should you wish to get qualified but as the most senior people in the industry have had nothi...

Re: New hat on the way....

You'd be looking at around £1,500 for something properly made to match the original in the right thicknesses and in decent materials and production methods.

Re: Weapon Stand for Show and Tell

Ranulf is right. There are racks on walls for pole weapons and guns certainly but when it comes to the weekend event in a field a sword caddy for show and tell was not something that troubled the medieval mind.

Re: Sophie Stockbridge, poleaxe champ

Define wrong? They put on bits of metal and padding and belt each other with blunt weapons and fight within rules they have set up. After that its a huge kettle of fish that's open to interpretation and opinion.
