Video - The Middle Ages

Over the years, I have been involved in medieval living history programs, and this was originally designed as a marketing piece to pitch our services to schools and museums. It is actually of a program we did something like ten years ago, but like bugs preserved in amber, we haven't changed that much (a little grayer and heavier perhaps).

The groups involved, the Red Company, the Yeoman Archers and Danzando, don't really exist any more, but most of the individuals are still involved in some capacity.

The Middle Ages is, in some ways, my first love. I majored in Medieval History in college and would do a lot more of it if Southern California were a more congenial environment for tights and pointy shoes. But, since our "white people" history is pretty much limited to the 19th and 20th Centuries, I have to make do.
