Tintern Abbey

About

Mercenary archers are encamped at the Abbey with their families! Why are they here? How do they survive these troubled times?

1471 - a company of archers and their families rest at the abbey in order to pay their respects to William Herbert, Earl of Pembroke. They set up camp in the grounds and continue to practice their civilian skills, such as fletching, spinning, dyeing, cooking, leather working, rush weaving and, of course, enjoying recreation in the tavern tent. One can even write!

Come and see all this close up, and maybe try your hand at medieval board and dice games, or even braid making. Watch the cooks prepare the company's meal, and question the arrowsmith and bowyer on their skills and kills.
