Member of the public, Multi-period Ancient Greek - WWII.

We went principally in search of any re-enactor's stalls for cloth etc, but enjoyed many of the displays as well. I picked up a penannular brooch, whetstone & wooden 'bottle' for dice, saw some of the gang and met members of Vicus.

There were vast numbers of American Civil War re-enactors as well as some anarchist cowboys and I got to suit up in C15th kit! Just the smell of woodsmoke from the vast period camp was enough to calm the blood. Seeing the German army re-enactors for the first time was frankly a bit creepy, but the fly past, well, buzz, of a Lancaster actually got me straight in the gut, as did some American Civil War musicians playing 'The Battle Hymn of the Republic' - Confederate alongside Union!

I thought I recognised one of the Vicus members - he looked very much like my old mate Dai Bath from York University days. I must make some more enquiries.
