Saturday 21st January

Medieval living history day at Ely Museum

Interested in history? Would you like to meet the Men, Woman and Children of a 15th century household? Talk to the Man at Arms and Archers - hear about the weapons, armour of the time and what it would be like in the army that would have fought at Bosworth. Or if combat is not your thing, join our camp followers, learn about the games, crafts and skills of your ancestors, see our cook, watch our maille maker or leather crafter, challenge yourself to a game of 9-mans-morris or listen to our bard.
