CONQUEST- The Society of Anglo-Norman Living History
Submitted by Catriona on Sat, 2003-10-04 15:18
Conquest is a non profit organization that recreates the Anglo-Norman period of English history from the Battle of Hastings up until the signing of the Magna Carta (1066 to 1215AD). The society does not attempt to cover the whole period of 1066 to 1215, but has selected three time lines in order to better concentrate research efforts and to ensure accuracy. Much like the SCA, Conquest members give demonstrations of camp life of an Anglo-Norman army on campaign, though historical accuracy is paramount. The web site has infomation on the history and culture of the time period, as well as the poems that shaped the ideals of the code of medieval chivalry: The Song of Roland and the Poema Del Cid.
