You don’t have to imagine the roar of cannons, the crackle of musketry, the clash of armour, the thunder of horses hooves and the beating of drums. You can see and hear the drama of a civil war battle being recreated by members of The English Civil War Society. Smell the gunpowder during the battle, or the woodsmoke from the soldiers’ campfires and the aromas of food being cooked in seventeenth century fashion. Feel the weight of muskets and armour, see craftsmen at work using the tools and techniques of the seventeenth century. Discover the social divide between the finely dressed officers and gentry and the soldiers and tradesmen beneath them.
