Medievalists invade the Ames Free Library

Patrons of the Ames Free Library in Easton, Massachusetts were transported back to the Middle Ages when members of the Society for Creative Anachronism offered them a history lesson, with the group demonstrating its skills in crafts and combat. A photographer from the Easton Journal was on hand to capture the activities.

The library's mini ren faire took place September 14, 2013 at the Queset Gardens, behind the library. Members showed off their skills in shoemaking, costuming, bobbin weaving, and stained glass, as well as armored combat.
