On June 2-3, an international crowd (Flemish, Walloons, Dutch, German, Italian, Frencg, even a lonely Scott) of Medieval re-enactors assembled in a park in Antwerp, Belgium in order to offer us a show of the medieval times. They constructed quite a large village with "shops" offering woodcraft, leather works (You should see the shoes on offer :tongue and metalworks, besides their living tents. In the afternoon, a battle between two armies was staged. You can see my pics (straight from the camera, no retouches done save downsampling) on http://hdemey.zenfolio.com in the map "Medieval re-enactment. And please, don't think that this is the normal way of spending our weekends in "the Olde Countries".. As far as I know this was a once-only event.
