Welcome to Keele University's 12th century re-enactment society! We are part of Historia Normannis, a nationwide organisation that accurately portrays life in Anglo-Norman Britain during the 12th century (think Robin Hood).
[DUE TO COVID, BOTH IN PERSON CRAFT AND TRAINING SESSIONS ARE CURRENTLY POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE]
We offer full training in re-enactment safe combat, as would have been the case back in the 12th century, and practice every sunday from 11am onwards, down at the field near the Sneyd Arms in Keele Village (found here https://goo.gl/maps/MYUM526FeYx) . For the first few weeks of term we meet at the Forst of Light so new members can be shown the way.
We hold weekly craft sessions where members keen to join in are taught lifelong skills such as sewing, leatherwork, woodwork and metalwork, in order to produce their own items of authentic 12th century kit to wear at shows over the summer. These are held at the Lindsey social space (also known as the Hex) from 19:00 every Thursdasy (found here https://goo.gl/maps/kKMVKkqEnFo).
We look forward to meeting you!
