I spent a weekend a few weeks ago in Scotland, playing dress up with a whole bunch of other people who like to dress up, play with swords and shields and shoot with bows and arrows.
And it was fun!!
Yes, there is an element of being embarrassed when the general public (the ones not in full kit) see you, but that gets old pretty quick.
The kids have so many questions, and its a blast to encourage them to think about the past, and why the world is the way it is now.
It was a Viking weekend and after passing my Archery leaders course last week I was finally teaching 'officially'. I have been taking "have a go" archery for a few months now, but its only this past week that I have qualified!
There was camping for those who wanted it (but not for me, I stayed in a friends house) and plenty of socialising.
