    On the subject of speculation of history, what bugs me all the time is the 'stratification' of eras. New technologies took time to spread, and although some wealthy/ powerful individuals would have had the latest equipment and weaponry, it would be some years before that kind of expensive material was commonplace. So sneering at a peasant levy for not having the most exotic armour is as wildly inaccurate as machine guns at Agincourt. And it is reasonable to presume that the lower status troops would have the older, more worn equipment - not a hundred years out, but 10 or 20 is logical. At the same time, we should not accept the argument that ( and I quote ) " if the romans had it, the Saxons would have" . These were totally different cultures! Sorry to go off topic, now I'll look for some new pictures to put up.

    Hehe, that's cool. Once upon a time I tried larp (and yeah, I know that this has nothing to do with it ;) ), and had a chain mail myself. You definetely know what you did after a day wearing that stuff.

    I n full kit, without weapons or shield, I'm carrying about 26 kilos. With the rest, maybe another 5-6. It shows after a long day! Which is partly why my doctor thought his blood pressure machine was crocked - he didn't think someone my age would be that fit!

    These were taken at Sussex Bonfire events this year. The Bonfire/firework/drinking season in Sussex starts the first week of September and goes through every weekend until early December, the highlight being at Lewes on November 5th. The reenactments occur all over the country and europe at all times of year. I haven't been able to fight too much recently because of an injury, but I usually take to the field a few times each year. Next big one will be Hastings 2016 - 950th anniversary of the Norman invasion. I should get a couple in before that, but not sure. There are a couple of others on the forum who do it as well, so look out for their posts too.

    It's quite small, but impressive, mostly the center. Statues, churches, all these old buildings... It did feel like the old capital of Charlemagne :)

    You may remember I posted a photo of myself a while back from my first show. Since then... mistakes were made, that's all I'll say.

    And, a little late, but still the train hasn't left, Happy New Year folks! In this case, we were in Vienna at a friend's house over the holidays.
