Unusual Bank Holiday Weekend

Unusual for us in clan Aginoth as we don't have a reenactment event to partake of this weekend...SHOCK HORROR.

So instead we have just had to go visit one insted, we took a trip up to Kenilworth Castle to see the medieval village they have set up in part of the celebration of the 900th anniversay of the founding of the castle.

(not a pic I took <<<) Here's a couple of pics I took today.

Oh and if you are wondering what happened to the Italy reenactment pics.... I have set up a slideshow here for your enjoyment....

We had a German re-enactor visiting our camp that evening. She was totally baffled by the antics of drunk Brits & their practical jokes (tying up people with string, drawing rude bits on their clothes etc). Apparently this is not done in germany. Do you think this is:
a) because they don't get drunk?
b) because they have no sense of humour,
c) because they are not imbeciles?

I think it was a sad indictment on British culture that we not only do this at every opportunity, but expect the opportunities to arise frequently!

GREAT PICTURES, Mr. A. One really gets a sense of the "war" feeling that these reanactments portray....Thanks for this very fascinating glimpse into this world...
