I was going to blog on Tuesday, but had to dash off to Birmingham for work. Then I was going to blog when I got home last night but I wasn't feeling so hot.....
Today I have swollen tonsils and a temperature, but it's about time I popped in to say 'hi'.
Re-enactment in Italy in amazing, truly wonderful. It was incredibly hot and sticky in the field, and the mozzies were horrendous, but the event was one I'll treasure for a long time. Of course, my life became so much better when I found a porcelain 'sittie' toilet (most public toilets are 'squatties') - some 'luxuries' are hard to forego.
The food was provided by the Italians, and mostly comprised bread, sausages, cabbage and apples. Vintner did a fabulous job of making breakfast, lunch and dinner every day out of the minimal provisions.
This was the view from our camp..
Isn't it idyllic?I like this photo - it sums up life in camp. It reflects the whole 'immersion' principle of re-enactment.
You can see all my photos on my flicker account here.
This excellent photo is stolen from Aginoth's photos. From the left, preparing for the night tournament: Lord Thomas Hungerford (aka Gary), Thomas Hungerford Junior (aka Si) and, our little man, Page to Thomas Hungerford Jr (aka Aginoth Jr.)Now, who wouldn't want to play at cool soldiers like this??
