So had awesome fun at Kelmarsh Hall this weekend with History Live. Fought in two versions of the Battle of Standards http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_the_Standard As a Scot and got to fight then run away.

Fought in two versions of Battle of Stokes Field as an unarmoured Irish Peasant where I got to fight then run away (are you sensing a theme) then join the Landsknechts army for their glorious death stand!

All good fun then got to spend the rest of the weekend snoozing in the sun or talking to the public and then trying to turn the joke firewood EH supplied into something that you could cook over.

So in all a great weekend and lovely to get out and do some stuff. My hips complained but with the modern chemistry applied I was able to over come and play but I was glad not to be wearing armour.
