On 16 July 2011 the 601th anniversary celebrations will take place.
Until then watch the first part of unpublished, editorial photos from the 600th anniversary of the Battle of Grunwald 1410.
Living history re-enactment took place in Poland on July 2010. About 6000 reenactors, 2200 knights, near 200 thousands of spectators…
King Wladyslaw II Jagiello with his retinue, heading to the battle field.
A tiny part of the large medieval encampment
The day before the main battle event. ‘Warming up’ in the ‘bohurt’, a real knights fight, real heavy armors and weapons.
Daily life of medieval village, building a camp
Shooting with a whip, medieval re-enactors practicing their skills
Young medieval Page helping his Knight
Medieval decapitation… some have to be rewarded and some have to be punished
Fashion in Middle Ages, reenactors dressed up in costumes from the era
Maybe with one exception… (not a reenactor actually)
