|We participate in a variety
of activities such as: live and/or static demonstrations for educational
organizations, and groups, as well as participating in community parades,
Living History "Timeline" portrayals, and gatherings for our own enjoyment.
However, our favorite activity is our special "Medieval Life" demonstration
that we present to local schools. During these presentations we educate
school children (typically 6th Graders in NY State) about the daily lives
of various people in the Middle Ages. We display and demonstrate a wide
array of items, tools, and elements of daily life. We demonstrate typical
handcrafts from weaving to armoring. We discuss and lecture on science as
it was practiced. We even, from time to time, present demonstrations of
the Art of Falconry. And of course, we also have a detailed presentation
about the life of a knight from youth through adulthood as well as demonstrating
the proper use of armor and arms, including the joust.
Presentations and/or events may be only a few hours long, or may run for
several days with all, or only part, of that time open to the public. During
all of our events, both public and private, we make every attempt to keep
all anachronisms hidden from view, and all participants stay in costume
and character. In addition to the jousting and ground combat activities
we also practice many non-combative activities such as cooking, crafts,
or other domestic duties.
