2008 in Retrospect - Medieval Festival

Way back on 17 May our boys went to the annual Medieval Festival (http://www.medievalsa.org/photos.htm) which is held in the lovely Adelaide Hills township of Gumeracha (that's where the Giant Rocking Horse and toy factory is(http://www.thetoyfactory.com.au/)).

Our boys have always been keenly interested in all things Medieval, but after holding swords and shields, donning chain mail, and watching the Medieval re-enacters dance and fight, they are now even more enthused. We've made contact with one of the local societies of "Creative Anachronism" (medieval re-enacters (http://www.sca.org.au/index.html)) and they've already had their first sword fighting lesson (with foam swords!)
