In Grade 6 (when I was about 11-12 years old), we had MEDIEVAL DAYS at our school. A troupe of performers introduced us to the medieval life, through swordplay, the garb, the food, the customs. It was a time that I never forget and even the intervening years did not dim it – I love that period in history above all others – not that it was a picnic for those who lived IN it.
Apologies, ermine fans.
Boom Tish, as Mark Kermode is wont to say.
Schaden – ‘fried’
This one should get rid of the rest of my readers. Thanks to both of you!
