Beeston Castle in Action

As promised here are two little videos I took last Sunday at Beeston Castle. The Medieval battles took place in the afternoon and the participants were dressed in chain mail and proper helmets for it. You'll have to excuse any camera wobbling, but Samuel was leaning on me as he was tired! And if you can hear any talking - its Samuel asking me questions!

And sorry for any heads that cross the screen. They were attached to bodies!

All this fighting took place in a 27degree heat and the armour and battledress were very heavy. We watched, I think 6 of these fights - they use real swords and axes too!
