Hello! Yesterday I went to an awesome event, the Archeology Festival. The weather was definitely English… But I had a lot of fun anyway!
The event was held in a reconstructed prehistoric village filled with not only merchants and barbarians, but very handsome Scottish gentlemen as well. Cool, right?
The main attraction was the battle. Well, a lot of battles to be precise. Men dressed as warriors were fighting all the time. But some of them came on a stage and gave a short explanation about their costumes and weapons.
When it comes to houses in the village, all were crowded and people were selling things inside. The empty ones were very dark and usually full of smoke from the fire. They were so cosy! I managed to take a photo of some herbs drying near the ceiling.
There were tents as well. This area is supposed to be the Roman camp. Unfortunately everyone went to participate in one of the battles so the camp was empty.
Here you can see a clay oven, used mostly to bake bread. I think I saw three of them yesterday.
Don’t forget about animals! Only cows remained outside, because of the weather. Brave ones!
Sometimes you have to travel. That’s why you need boats. This one was very pretty!
BONUS photo. You better not make me angry! Haha
You could try on some armour and pose with weapons. They were quite big and very heavy! It was so much fun!
The final event was an Irish dance performance. The dancers taught us some moves after the show! I think it was the best point of the festival!
That’s it for today. You should definitely give a festival like this a try, it’s just awesome.
Have a nice week everyone! See you soon!
