Imagine exploring the expanses of the known world as Europe knew it in the year 1000 AD. The geopolitical map of that era is more similar to our own than many realize. Join us as we explore the known world as it existed at the start of the Late Middle Ages**. Enjoy traveling with us and enjoy the activities of the day.
There will be fighting with both Steel and Rattan, and as is our tradition highlighted by the Chieftains Tourney to determine who will hold the Chieftains Mace for another year. Though there will be no feast, there will be a groaning board included in the registration fee, from 11 am until court, stocked with foods located you might run across in your travels. And if you need a break from the crowds the site’s Sanctuary will be available as a quiet space, until it opens up for Court. The Church is dry but after the lists are fought and until Court, you can join Corbyn, our host, at his home on-site to share libations.
There will be classes on Slab Pottery Construction, Mesoamerican Cooking, Construction of the Moy Gown, Beginning European Dance
Midlands Village Green – Saturday, March 4, 9:00-6:00 pm
815 S 2nd St, Springfield, IL 62704-2601 (The Cathedral Church of St Paul)
This day will be a relaxed project day based on the craftsperson’s green concept, so like an A&S fair but with no judging, just work on your passions, show them off, talk to others, learn new things, and socialize! We have multiple rooms on-site to put people so we’re using the following categories* to group Artisans –
~Bardic – performing
~Historical combat (classes)
Preregistration is required but free.
