The starting point is research and communication. How did a
medieval battle impact on how people used their weapons , and how
it worked in practice?
"This is something you can think about for a long time . We just
do it in practice instead. This can only be done because the Days
of Battle has established a forum where the museum and the players
can meet, share experiences, test the theory and gain an
understanding of the reality of medieval warriors. It could not be
done without much planning and work by the players with Lupus
Tempus and Warwik as the head delivers," says head of department at
Nyborg Castle, Janus Møller Jensen.
Medieval fast food and royal banquet
There is a number of initiatives for the audience at the event.
There are medieval fast food in King's Inn outside the castle, and
there is competition on the best fight show, archery competition ,
you can see the falconer's bird and the Knight Obstacle Course -
where knights compete to clear obstacles dressed in full armor.
There is also a weapons workshop, where you can hear and see what
damage medieval weapons did. It says a lot about the proper
handling of the weapons , and is an important addition to the
written sources descriptions.
"There's Harvest Market in the King's pantry , the royal banquet
in the Great Hall and wild dinner at the King's Inn. Yeah, we have
fun , but is serious when we recreate Nyborg and Denmark's history
with a unique event that combines experience , communication and
research in a unique way , "says Janus Møller Jensen.
In 2012 resulted event in nearly 9,000 guests as well as an
option to the Funen Culture Prize 2013.
