Sacuidic: Medieval Weapons

Medieval life was all about wannabe Kings and rebel barons and power-thirsty Popes fighting over who would control that piece of land, no, that one, and that other one too, thank you very much. Well, it was actually about peasants , equally miserable on either side of the contended borders and getting along just fine with their neighbours at the weekly wool market or summer fair and who were instead forced to pick up their pitchforks to disembowel each other. Most of the times without a decent weapon.

The lucky few who had some gold, though, could afford a padded doublet, a piece of armor or even a steel sword, and possibly increase their chances to return to their muddy fields after yet another battle ended.

So if you didn’t have enough after Medieval characters,  Medieval pets  and Medieval parades, here’s another bunch of pics taken in the magical Medieval re-enactment at Forni di Sopra, this time about Medieval weapons.

And let’s not forget the strongest weapon of all: MAGIC!

At a time in which you would think yourself cursed if the old woman who lived beyond the pines gave you the stink eye, even a stick purposefully pointed at someone else whilst muttering a barely intelligible but threatening-sounding version of your grocery list (you know, parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme and so forth) could be considered as a powerful weapon.

Sacuidic: Medieval parade

Hello Medieval fanatics! Here’s the latest post in the series of Sacuidic: Medieval tidbits and Medieval whatnots.

A Medieval parade! Because what’s the point of wearing velvet gowns and mantels and doughnut-shaped hats if you cannot strut around in them?

Forget cute kittens, what you need is a cute owl or falcon, am I right?

Sacuidic: Medieval characters.

This is for you, fantasy epic books reader and also for you, LOTR and GOT watcher, and maybe also for all the other people who would love to dress up as their favourite medieval character (archer-sorceress-elf for me, thanks) but don’t have the guts to.
