Realms of Avalon
MisCon 29 Panel Volunteer
Realms of Avalon is a medieval re-enactment group. We actively study historical subjects and skills. This means instead of just reading about activities and skills used in the past, we actually do them.
We not only learn skills, but have fun meeting people, trying new things, talking, and doing all sorts of fun games and activities. That is why we call what we do "playing" - - it's so fun, you forget that you're learning history!
We gather on a regular basis for candlelight feasts with historical foods, historically themed campouts, workshops on skills or topics, competitions in skills, lectures and movie nights, practice sessions on things like combat, dancing, and archery... and just about any type of historically themed gathering that sounds like fun.
When we gather together we wear historical costumes, use historically based tools and equipment and supplies, and even adopt the identity of someone who might have lived in history. Part of the fun is learning how to make your gear - - or you can buy, barter, or trade your stuff with someone else. There will be plenty of people around happy to help you get started.
