Medieval Fun Day

We went to a Medieval Fun Day at the National Archives in Kew.

In the foyer there were medieval weapons and armour to try on.

Then we went into the learning room and studied some medieval documents.

Here is my brother with a Great seal.

Then we learnt about medieval costumes and I was chosen to try one on.

Then we got to make our own headdresses. And we also got to paint our own illuminated letters.

Then outside, there was a real medieval fight going on.

This was a brilliant day and we are going to go to another one of these as it was so good.
