personally, as a Scot, I will be decorating my body completely in swirls of woad to summon the triple goddess of witlessness, moronity and silliness. However, since allof thins will be under tunic, gamby and hauberk, no-one will see it. Might as well not bother, really.

WM is quite thin really and not really interested in being a Norman.
no, Stewart is an actual stuffy monkey but he doesn't have enough norman kit to take the field yet. Also, he's under 18 yrs but he could be a non-com page or summat.

From a period coconut tree? Might be a bit past their sell-by date though. That's alright, wouldn't be eating them anyway! Now, where did I put the fake tan and the long black wig? :lol: Actually the only evidence for coconuts in period is being used as knights' horses. I quote MPATHG as source

As a member of Gaddgedlar (who got their stuff pinched), I'd like to say thank you once more to those reenactors who organised and participated in the whip round. It helped enormously to rebuild our trust in people after the smack it took from the local f***wits who had done the theft.

Is the hammer neccessary or is it a ritual item? Please provide more information.

Actually, it's the Scottish martial art of Siujimi. Including such moves as "Giesmairchipspal", "Haudmabottlaneedapish" and of course "Canyirmammyso?"

Chausses and padded hose

Ok, I'm upgrading and adding chausses to my knight's kit. Late 13th to early 14th century. The thing I'm wondering about is attaching the chausses to a belt or summat.

Could you point me to sources or give me hints, please.

And is there a difference between saxon and norman?

Kites at Hastings

Hi guys.

Could anyone point me to urls about kites in 1066. I'm thinking both Saxon and Norman kites.

For something to argue about: bosses or double straps?

I found that to start with as well. The idea is not to use it in the same way as a normal heater. I could show you at training.
