Come and see the Free Company Aquitaine demonstrating the art and skill of the medieval warbow. Watch demonstrations of archery, see and learn about the arming of the knight and talk to the blacksmith/armourer, bowyer, spinster and surgeon about the medieval way of life.
Within their 14th century camp you can meet the members of The Free Company. Learn about the armour of the knight as his squire dresses him for combat and discover the tools of the barber surgeon as she readies her table for the injuries that always follow battle. Behind the scenes there is plenty of activity as the bowyer crafts bows out of staves of yew, the smith forges arrowheads and the womenfolk spin wool for their clothing while watching the next meal bubble away on the open fire. It promises to be a great day out in history!
