Quite legit for archers to have leg armour, especially if they are household or mounted archers (using early draggoon type tactics)- I really dislike this " Iam an archer so I shall be a scruffy get wearing an arsewipe for a shirt and manky hose" when they were on a par with, and sometime...

As someone who isn't a re-enactment trader (tent peg empire aside ) this is an fascinating conversation.

I note that has roof with a purely triangular cross section, rather than a pyramidal roof.

The sides do appear to slope, so in the limiting case that is pyramidal, but I'd still rather have a direct primary source for a tent without a long ridge.

He seemed like a great bloke, and a fabulous portfolio with him.

I've kept his card in case one day we can feel we might do him justice; I think we're getting there, very slowly.

Come to Lanark - then we can discuss the merits or otherwise of Bannockburn events in the past in person. I'd love to come; as it happens this year it falls at the end of a long run.

Will you be having rules and regulations for traders beyond the recommendations of the historic branch of the NMTF? As I've said before, the EMA is run by it's membership. Right now we don't have a traders membership, so it's a clean slate. So I would guess it's for the early members to help decide...

The E.M.A. are considering whether we should set up a trader's membership and we'd like to know if you'd be interested. In essence this would work in much the same way as it does for the re-enactor element of the E.M.A., a mutually supporting community. Obviously traders already have the historic br...
