Recent Successes and Current Challenges
Visitors may now visit our new blacksmith's forge, featuring a unique hand-forged medieval-type anvil, where iron work demonstrations are presented during village hours. This structure was built using medieval tools and timber-frame / wattle and daub techniques, and is now a popular attraction for visitors of all ages. A new shoe making demonstration is now featured at our village.
Funding is needed now to continue construction of new dwelling structures in the village, a new gatehouse / interpretive center and a woodworking shop. 2013 funds will also help fund a festival presentation of martial combat based on manuals written in the 14th and 15th century.
