Is it a piece of experimental archeology, public edumatainment or historical self-indulgent [in the best sense] full imersion?

Or all three?


Historical self indulgence.

Campaign Style Events?

Having read the Events Section and seeing The Napoleonic Grand Campaign idea, my questions are: Does this happen at 15th Century level in the UK? If so when/where? If not, does it appeal to anyone else? Or am I just a bit unhinged to want to tramp round the countyside in kit and sleep rough? :roll:
