Summer of history and re-enactors.

Wow, the history is all around us and what a dedication from re-enactors to bring this to life. We have spoken to solicitors and professors who take part in these events, French people who traveled to take part in the Tewkesbury battle and a Roman soldier who came from New Zealand. There is no museum that can rival this type of reality to bring thousands of years of history to life again.
