 Frequently Asked Questions

-What is Living History?
"Living History is the accurate presentation of daily life - civil or military - in a defined period of time." Displaying Living History is keeping alive a piece of our own History, as our ancestors lived, cooked, slept, fighted...
-What is Re-enactment?
"Re-enactment is replaying a specific historic event, as a battle, a siege, a coronation...".
-What is Experimental Archaeology?
"Experimental archaeology is reconstructing tools, utensils, clothing,... of a certain period in time using authentic materials and techniques, and using these just like people from that time would have done."
-Use the re-enactors real weapons ?
"Absolutely not! Swords, daggers, bows, cross bows, handguns, cannons, lances or pikes are not real weapons, but replicas .
Remember everytime the difference between "weapon" and "replicas of weapon" : this small difference can take many trouble away from You!
- Where is it possible to get historical equipment?
"The best thing is everytime to make your own clothes and equipments by Yourselves, using medieval techniques and the right materials.
Certain stuff is difficult to make by Yourselves, like for example a sword. But there are many good handcrafts in Europe specialised in arms, armours, shoes, and more..."
