Martin is a treasonous thief who has been caught, tried and condemned........to be hung from the gate of Pembroke Castle.
The narration is delivered by Nick, aka Lord de Beauchamp, watched over by Young Lord Thomas Hungerford (leaning on his sword). This is the crowning part of the Crime and Punishment session, which includes deliberations on adultery, thieving and treason. The Company are debating having me up for the crime of forgery or light coins this season, but they would have to hang draw and quarter me (the usual punishment for an errant Moneyer!) and I think even that might be beyond our modest SFX!
Don't strain your eyes - the Crazie One is not in this film!
I like this film, videoed by MB, so much I'm leaving it up for a couple of days for everyone to see.
Feel free to link it, comment on it or steal it (david!) with the appropriate acknowledgement.
With the new season right around the corner, one's thoughts are totally concentrated on preparation for the first event - Easter weekend at Caerphilly Castle. Add to that the responsibilities of this new junior Council Officer and Membership Officer - and my mind is preoccupied.
We went to the Re-Enactor Market today - very much more successful shopping trip than the last market.
I bought a new stool (finally, my own stool!), a sheepskin to throw over it (which needs 'distressing'!), a water ewer (big enough to use to take water to the soldiery too) and an adorable little handmade wicker basket.
