Medieval Swordsmanship [Aug. 18th, 2018|09:21 am]
Tony Grist
There was a guy at Battle Abbey running little workshops in medieval living for the kids. Ivy got to play at jousting (using a hobbyhorse), learned how do two dances- a peasant one and a courtly one, and received instruction in carving an enemy up on the battlefield; "First you chop the right arm, then the left arm, next you chop the legs, then you stick him in the guts and waggle the blade about to cause maximum damage, and finally you deliver a massive downward blow to the head and cut him in half." Here she is practising her newly learned skills on the wooden sculpture of an impassive Norman knight.

Goodness! Nothing like realism for children but history is gruesome like that. Lovely action photo. She manages that sword well!

I think the enormously popular "Horrible Histories" have had a huge influence on the way the subject is taught.
