Medieval man comes to Old Buckenham

Living history
The speaker at the June meeting of the Old Buckenham Social and Wine Circle was Mike Wabe and his subject was Life in Medieval England. He brought the subject to life by dressing in the appropriate clothing and playing the part of an inhabitant of that period of English history. As well as the clothing he demonstrated with a selection of eating and drinking utensils as well as various weapons of war such as shields, swords and helmets.

Members also took the opportunity to get together for a group photograph which could possibly appear in the Old Buckenham village calendar for 2016 (which will list many of the organisations that are based in the village).
