Sword and Buckler Seminar Easter Monday 9th April

... . ⋅ Single handed blunted Metal Reenactment blades. There are a large number of suppliers. A caution here is that the types of sword depicted in MS I:33 are very light and fast. You may be able to manage the moves with a Viking blade but the balance and weight will ...

Battle of the Nations - an Irish presence? (Long)

... let me be clear: This is not something that will be of interest to 90% of people involved in reenactment, nor should it be. There are different types of reenactment fighting.

Re: Derrick's Eonar/Ionar or Tutu, mystery solved?

Not sure that I agree with the idea of the 'thorny' stick being a Javelin, despite the pointy end. I guess we would have to check with different types of throwing stick and Javelin head to verify what did or didn't work though. For me it sort of depends on who the emissary is. Is he meant to be ...

Re: 16th Century Shields

... to ask last time, but when you say you can use a small shield to bat away incoming javelins, are you referring to a centrally gripped buckler type shield, or a strapped to the arm targe type shield, or does it not matter? And is this opinion based on any experience, or is it just speculation?
