BACK IN TIME IN THE CHILTERNS
VISITORS to a museum at the weekend saw history repeat itself as the venue played host to a special re-enactment of a 600-year-old battle.
People flocked to the Chiltern Open Air Museum, Newland Park, as soldiers, archers and crossbowmen from the Battle of Agincourt set up their encampment at the weekend.
Crowds were treated to an exciting and memorable event as they saw displays of skill and accuracy with longbows, crossbows and swords and watching armoured knights compete.
Helen Light, marketing officer at the museum, said: “Saturday’s glorious weather meant there was plenty of opportunity to stroll around the museum enjoying the sunshine and chatting with the re-enactors and visitors enjoyed trying on armour, grinding medieval spices by the kitchen fire and even making their own brass rubbing.
“Those brave visitors who defied Sunday’s rain to come and see the event shared the shelter of the Museum’s buildings with the re-enactors’ displays of armour, archery and living history activities.”
