|Medieval food preparation|
The medieval fayre in Colchester covers all aspects of life for that period (aside from jousting - too many health and safety issues, sigh). Last week I covered weapons, fighting, and battle-associated sports. This week I'm moving onto more civilised ways of entertainment, clothing, and the way of life in general.
|Not your usual Tupperware - medieval pots and pans|
|Wooden serving bowls and platters|
|Performing George and the Dragon|
|Another medieval 'sport' - Splatte ye Ratte|
But I have to say, the main attraction for me aside from all the shiny weapons is the clothing! I LOVE medieval fashion, probably one reason why I not only set the opening of my scifi romance Keir in a medieval style civilisation, but my heroine Quin also tends toward that style of clothing. Well, not the dresses so much - not so practical for running away from danger - but the general feel of it.
