Our program is focused on teaching historical arts connected to the martial culture of Europe in the time of the crusades and beyond to the 16th century. We teach history and real world skills related to the time and culture of Knighthood.
This winter course we will focus on the War Of The Roses and King Richard III who's grave site was recently excavated underneath a parking lot in Europe. Archaeological work since has revealed a great deal about him. He was recently re entombed to great fanfare.
