The knights of the around here table

Eye Weekly describes Lord Mayor's Market Day in Eoforwic.

"On Monday morning, these medieval characters, whose personas span the years 600 to 1600, will outfit themselves in the garb of 21st-century lawyers, teachers, customs brokers and computer geeks," Zeltserman writes. "But by night they devote themselves to 'recreational scholarship,' meticulously recreating worlds long dead to the rest of us. They're self-taught experts in the minutiae of day-to-day medieval life, tracking down recipes, studying forgotten languages, practising metalwork or sewing."
