The time of swords and shields, the time of knights, battles and slaughter: most people have this picture in mind through books and films when they think of the Middle Ages.

The historical medieval maneuver shows how it really was: with authentic weapons and equipment, the maneuver traces the real events in war and peace. It quickly becomes clear that the Middle Ages were not a particularly bloodthirsty and dark period. The actors have been dealing with the combat techniques of foot soldiers and the life of ordinary soldiers for years and can thus offer a vivid picture of the battles of the time.
