"Knights" bring history to California middle schoolers

It was a day when history came to life recently at Lompoc Valley Middle School when students were treated to a display of armored combat and other lessons from the Middle Ages courtesy of members of the local chapter of the Society for Creative Anachronism. (photo)

Photographer Len Wood of The Record captured the action as fighters George Crandell and Scott Ehmer demonstrated their skills. The visit was part of the students' study unit for English and social studies.
