We also managed to fit in some target archery and combat training. Thanks to all those that took part, it was a great day, and in our opinion this stuff is the most difficult and authentic 15th C combat in re-enactment. Any kind of score on any of the Key Performance Indicators is something to be proud of
Congratulations also to our six Naseby Newbies, who took part for the first time!
Nodo Firmo, baby.
