I dedicate this book to all the re-enactors: to those people who spend their weekends pitching tents, lighting campfires, cooking over cauldrons, endlessly sewing costumes, practising archery or swordplay, making weapons, jewellery and pottery – to those people who strive to keep history alive in our hearts.
