Our national society, Regia Anglorum, organises a spring training weekend every March to give us all a chance to practise together before the show season starts. As described in a previous post, the warriors had a splendid time with their usual weapons training.
|Line fights in the woods|
|Od the Slight training with a single-handed spear|
|13th century combat|
Most of De Vey, however, used the event to train on the archery range.
|Tigwald works on his aim.|
|Toki teaches some of the Regia children to shoot.|
National trainings are also an opportunity for civilians to get together and learn new skills. Below you can see a member of Regia who is a blacksmith in "the real world", running a session on repousse. Other sessions included bead-making, costume-making, and Old English. As you can probably tell from the text at the top, I attended the last of these. Can you work out what that text says? Answer below the picture.
