The historical landscape that shaped the middle age reenactment
The middle is mostly considered the historical reenactment of the European history that dates back to the fall of the Rome. This period is at the end of 15th century where it divided into the middle age and the dark ages. With a wide range of re-enactment histories in European setting, most middle age groups focus on smaller time periods which they sometimes confine into a specific century.
Even in this day and age we take our time in selecting somewhere to perform, we often make sure we hire a ground maintenance company to oversee everything that we need so that no issues are left to chance. You can never be too careful.
They also restrict their interest to specific battles, fights, monarchs and even seasons depending on authenticity of the intended re-enactment.
The European middle ages to many people reminds them of the shiny thrones of various monarchs, magnificent castles, very interesting images of shiny knights, and glorious and sacred cathedrals. The middle age is a dynamic period in the history of Europeans that assisted them a lot in shaping their identity and encouraging development among them.
Most developments and historical improvements were stipulated by the Europeans’ interaction with other cultures during the middle age. This era proved to be a turning point to most of the Europeans as it was a time where social and political patterns were formed and started taking effect. Clear political boundaries, religion, and cultural identities were enacted at the middle age era. These trends created the present European culture.
The middle age is very synonymous with battles and fights which mostly were conducted to either defend or expand the territory. They would also conduct wrestling matches for entertainment or for competitions between monarchs. The landscapes of these battles were mostly hilly terrains and deserts as they believed that hills assist them in spotting the enemy in time. They would also conduct their battles in valleys where it would be difficult for the enemy to spot the warriors.
Forests and shrub lands proved to be the best hideouts for the warriors with their horses while battling their enemies. They loved using horses because they are faster and able to maneuver the hills and valleys with no difficulty, therefore giving them an advantage over their enemies.
