Saxon Re-enactment

The Battle of Maldon as seen at the Battle of Hastings re-enactment for English Heritage.  A forty five minute entertainment that tells the story of the battle fought at Maldon in 991 AD with the aid of an embroidery in the style of the Bayeux Tapestry.  A children’s show with lashings of blood, guts and gore; including a child size suit of chain mail, helmet, swords, shields and spears.  Suitable for schools, history fairs and fetes.  After the show there is a photo opportunity to dress your daughter or son as a Saxon Thegn.

For those interested in the Saxon period I can provide them with demonstrations of several aspects of Saxon everyday life.                      For the peace loving: Cooking, Weaving, Embroidery, Story Telling and Crafts.                                                                                                                         For the less peaceful: Chainmail making, Bows and Arrows, Blood Guts and Gore.
