School/Scout Program

Make medieval times come alive for your students/scouts.

Our standard presentation involves about 10 minutes of introductions and discussion to the whole group and then breaking the class/group into two.
The first group makes a piece of maille that they can take away with them and the other group tries on armour. The groups then swap.
The total duration is between 1 and 1 1/2 hours.

For larger class sizes the group can be divided into 3 with the third activity being Shield painting, sample shield designs are provided or the student can make up their own.
The design can be on paper or we can provide timber shields for the students to buy and paint.
