C&C 2008: Barbary Pirates vs The Knights of Rhodes

The Barbary Pirates under the leadership of the most dreaded Barbarossa Brothers are advancing into the heart of the Mediterranean Sea. Loyal citizens of the Trimarian Crown are being oppressed and attacked. The sea passage is no longer safe, and heralds are being sold into slavery!

As the knights of Rhodes rally the subjects of the Trimarian Crown to defend the lands and the seas, the Barbarossa Brothers did not rest on their Laurels [the ones they kidnapped, that is) and have been recruiting many more scurvy dogs to fill their ranks. The final battle is near! Battle with the knights and the pirates and lead one to supremacy over the Mediterranean Sea! Location:
Camp Immokalee, Keystone Heights, FL

Costume Colloquium: A tribute to Janet Arnold

Janet Arnold’s pioneering research into the cut and construction of clothes from the sixteenth to the early twentieth centuries provide invaluable information on clothing from the past. Her series of publications entitled Patterns of Fashion continues to make a profound impact in many fields, from the re-creation of historic dance and other forms of re-enactment to designs for stage, film and television. For art historians and conservators too, her insights have proved an indispensable aid to historical research. Location:
