Our goal is to introduce market visitors in what life and atmosphere might have been like at the beginning of the 15th century. For this reason we present ourselves on mediaeval markets in the context of apparel authenticity as well as in our equipment as detailed as possible and allow a resurrection in a part of the historical and cultural way of life.
In spite of all detailed obsession it only can be guessed, what exactly the life of the people in the Middle Ages looked. Therefore, our group strives for the best representation in the present time, but in the knowledge that an accurate authentic implementation is only approximate due to today's lifestyle (we buy our food in supermarkets and do not slaughter the geese on the market).
Meanwhile, we present a stately camp named "Bowguard Duke of Lancaster ," and can enrich medieval events with our army camp. From the small camp with 8 tents we can also provide camps with international participation with currently up to 15 tents and a large fly. We offer a bow-range with archery instruction, warbow demonstrations, Naalbinding works, leatherwork, medieval cooking and much more.
How was food prepared, how they fought and worked in the 15th century?
Visitors to Burg Herzberg can get this picture several times a year. Under the motto "Experience the Middle Ages", the "Bowguard Duke of Lancaster" in and around Herzberg Castle organizes an insight into the Middle Ages for all visitors. Together with fellow performers from home and abroad, the old walls will be actively used again. A castle revival is thus almost a museum event to experience, touch and try out.
As a rule, the actors perform extensive research in order to reconstruct life in the late Middle Ages in as much detail as possible. The performers are tailoring and sewing their own clothes. In this way, the function of this garments can most likely be confirmed or even refuted. All people gladly shared their knowledge with the event visitors.
