Courtesy Presentation at boot camp

Post by jelayemprins »

Items covered in the presentation on Courtesy at Boot Camp

The names and responsibilities of the servants
Laying of Tables
Grace before and after meals
Terms of a Carver
Table manners
Who sits where? [e.g. Royal banquets!]
Numbers dining in a messe, and allowances.
Original Sources – for further study
Role play – putting it into practice.

The presentation will be a serious study of the fascinating topic of Courtesy in the 15th century – easily adaptable to late 14th or early 16th century re-enactment.

Expect it to last 3 hours or so.

Now now Mr Lins....
Should know better at your age.

But- It will tell you how to slice your mud, what terms to use when slicing, present it on a trencher, bow 3 times over it, say Grace before and after, who should best serve the mud, where to sit mud in the socal hierachy of the time, and which table manners of the time are appropriate to the eating of mud.....

You asked for it :twisted:

Oooohhh wish I could go to this. I could check on what I'd been doing wrong for three years.

YOU HAVE SOOO NEVER BEEN TO ONE OF OUR BARBECUES
There’s a country in Europe where they treat their ex soldiers with pride no waits for medical treatment after injuries received during service, no amensia from the government. Cant for the life of me recall where it is but I know exactly where it is not.
