Come see what life was really like during the Middle Ages in Europe.  From the Vikings to the age of Columbus, various encampments will portray aspects of Medieval Life.  See how five hundred years of European culture thrived and changed. Romans, Saxons, Normans, and Vikings will portray life of this heroic era of Western Civilization. Finally, witness the changes that technology made by the late Middle Ages by viewing the 15th century War of the Roses and Irish encampments. 
The Romans will demonstrate a ballista and there will be long bow demonstrations at 1:00 and 3:00. On Saturday, there will be demonstrations in pottery and brewing.
Food and refreshments may be purchased.
