“I like, in my mind, being in a whole different time and a whole different place”

Re-creating the Middle Ages can be a different experience for each member, but most agree that it transports them to a different time. “I like, in my mind, being in a whole different time and a whole different place,” said Jackie Gotchal of the Shire of Carreg Wen in Caid.

The shire celebrated its 29th anniversary recently at Beattie Park with a display of A&S projects, armored combat and archery. “We teach each other what we learn about history in order to learn it better,” Gotchal told Carter.
