Cosmeston 2011

This event took place on the hills that surround the city of Cardiff. The event was held at the Cosmeston Medieval Village. This village is found on the outskirts of Cardiff and has been lovingly restored by local enthusiasts. This event was for infantry and artillery and we took part in both days skirmish in the afternoon. The highlight of this event was being able to use the medieval cottages for our living history, adding another dimension to our display.
