if it was over say four days, as a festival type thing that might be attractive, not just in terms of trading but the event itself.
ecws events at extremes of britain (eg powderham, etc) tend to have the campsite open for seeral days either side of the actual event, so that people can spend longer there - treat it as a short break, and not have to worry about a very long journey straight after a show.
the fighting's still only on the weekend days, ususally, but they get more people cos of them feeling less pressured / rushed.
Am sorely tempted to get some 14thc kit, what are teh key differences between early 14tch and mid 14thc?
thig to remember about the 14the century is that it's a transition between the looser more flowing dressmakey styles of the earlier medival clothing, to the tightly fitted tailored styles of later medieval.
a lot depends on age - there are pics of older gentlemen still wearing long tunics and surcotes well into the 2nd half of the century.
but it was by no means fashiopnable
and the very fitted styles of the black prince etc are really a no-no for earlier.
want to look at some books on 14th c at kelmarsh too???
sorry fopr typos - cat now on keyboard and
mouse...(not the squeaky furry kind...)
