Pacific University Returns to the Middle Ages

The Pacific University History Department, the Center for Women and Gender Equity and the Barony of Three Mountains hosted a Medieval Faire April 29, 2006 on the University's campus in Oregon.

Reporter Linda Saari looks at plans for the event, which was designed as an activity for community members of all ages.

"For this one day the clock will be turned back and Pacific's campus will be transformed into a medieval village complete with demonstrations of fencing, archery, royal court ritual, medieval cooking, crafts, braiding, book-making, and much more. There will also be food available and medieval crafts for sale and entertainment by various groups all day. In addition to performances and demonstrations, there will be vendor booths offering a variety of items."

Members of the Barony of Three Mountains helped organize the event and were scheduled to participate.
