Happy Easter

Today I am travelling back to 1370.
Actually, today we are going here:


This is Conwy Castle in North Wales and will be my home for the next couple of days.


I have my kit (see here) all ready and two loaves of fresh hand made bread. We will be camping just outside the castle in our reproduction 14C tents (no plastic groundsheets here!) and will be spending our days inside the castle being watched and filmed by several thousand holiday makers.
Two days with no spectacles and no shoes - such freedom.......

This is a couple of firsts for me - my first re-enactment as a signed up member of The Company of Chivary, my first Easter away from home and MB.

I will be back on Tuesday. Wish me luck!!

wow that looks really cool. I'm sure if we had any castles here in the states we'd bulldoze them and build a mall or something. :/

do you have to wear one of those lace up corset thingees, or was that just for wealthy folks?
