1971: Down by the town of Battle, site of the Battle of Hastings. I guess they don't do this anymore, they now have a Battle Festival, which is more of an arts festival. The one I went to
was more along the lines of what is now called a Renaissance Fair/Fayre/Festival. They had knights, jousting, some crafts, food. Actually had venison sliced off a deer cooked on a spit over an open fire. Mead, the honey drink (very potent, i remember). One of the knights was Michael of Forfar, they actually had big pavilions they stayed in (just like the movies). Had a good time, wonder why they stopped doing it??
