I want to make a lantern in the style of the one pictured here, but I would really like to know if any reenactors have any reference to them being made this way. Besides the 14th century reference to pig bladders being used.
Just got an e-mail to tell me to stay tune.
I would like to have a lantern like that one in the upper left corner.

I am looking for more information and resources from other Medieval Reenactors, and medieval enthusiasts. Especially with people and groups from Europe (“where the history comes from” Eddie Izzard).
This is the English version of the previously posted Dutch clip. Placidus is a Roman soldier, stationed in the legion’s camp of Noviomagus along the Rhine. In this film he shows you the clothing, armour and equipment of the Roman legionary soldier in the first century AD.
This early 16th century building originally formed part of a larger house, and was probably used as a kitchen for smoking, brewing and washing as well as everyday cooking. It has a crown post roof and is an excellent example of medieval timber-framed building construction. In 2001 the building was dismantled and moved to a more appropriate location. In the new reconstruction, modern buildings represent missing parts of the original house.
The “Saxon Geteld” is based on manuscript illustrations.One of the principal sources is the Utrecht Psalter, a ninth century French manuscript which shows several small tents. Also of note is the Harley Psalter, an 11th century English manuscript based on the Utrecht Psalter which shows a somewhat taller version of the same design.
For my 50th post ….. The Luttrell Psalter Film is a short film based on the famous images of medieval village life from the 14th Century Luttrell Psalter. The Psalter was made for Sir Geoffrey Luttrell of Irnham in Lincolnshire and is famous for its depiction of ordinary people. It is a remarkable and precious part of Lincolnshire’s heritage. The film was made for Lincoln’s museum.

Abbey was amazing! Best weekend :D
How the ancient technique of casting of a bronze sword in a stone mold might have led to the legend of King Arthur’s sword Excalibur, the famous Sword in the Stone. The imagery is unforgettable.
This dress is based on simple shapes and uses remarkably
little fabric. Most people can get the size they need out of 3m
of a standard 60” wide fabric. Choose a decent linen or fine
wool for accuracy.
Edit: Preshrink your fabric before cutting and sewing.
