Frontline Event- Hardwick Park – June 2018

The Frontline  event is a 3 Day event, Friday being a free Living History event for the local community, and Saturday – Sunday a full Living History multiperiod event with arena battles/displays throughout the day.  Phil and I went on the Saturday and it was a great day out.  Lots of daft buggers dressed up in anglo-saxon/Viking/German/USA civil war & Roman gear/ plenty of re-enactment battles and a perfect day for photography.

We’ll start with the medieval lot. They learn  crafts such as cooking, bread making and butter churning, ale brewing, naalbinding, embroidery and  spinning as well as training in combat, which may include axe, sword, spear or Dane –axe and also formation and shield wall skills.  We sadly didn’t see their combat display as Phil was drooling over the German military displays, but I did get pictures of their more homely pursuits.

Whilst we didn’t see the battles, we did see plenty of the warriors

  1. Great captions along with the pics. I had a grin at your intro “We’ll start with the medieval lot. They learn crafts such as cooking”
    Of course your next line expands upon this, but I read slowly and it made me laugh 🙂
