Re: Looking for reenactment group(North East England.)

Try and get in touch with a chap called John Slater from the TIME BANDITS - who do a whole range of periods.......if he does not know of a specific group in the N/E then you will need to go onto the Facebook pages to find the nearest group - good luck!

Re: WLTB Kassai / Grozer Magyar bow

Sorry - haven't got one to sell but a word of advise ..... if you are used to archery and in particular 35lb draw weight you might find that a horse bow of that poundage will feel 'light' to draw. it might be worth your while re-listing with a spread of say 35lb - 50lb with the option to try out bef...

Re: Looking for a group

Without known your specific geographical location I would get in touch with either 'THE FREEMEN OF GWENT' (1350 -1420) or B.O.A.R.S (Brotherhood Of Aman  Reenactment Society) ..... both on Facebook which also is a good locator of local groups.

Re: Wanted; white knee socks.

It all depends on how authentic you want to be - pure wool or cotton will be hard to find unless you can source an outfitter for Court Judges! However if you don't mind a cotton / polyester or similar mix try a Google search - 'LONG KNEE LENGTH WHITE COTTON SOCKS' and you will find various suppliers...

Apologies for a late response to your query - just new to the forum! The best / easiest way to answer your question is to look for place names which include the word 'Temple' - e.g. Temple Sowerby and Google search the history or look locations up on History on Line (http://www.british-history.ac.uk...

Hello,
