Living History – Saturday Belongs to Me.

This work explores mans relationship with both the milltary and its historical preservation and representation.
This chapter of the project looks at the ‘Living History’ groups who attend shows wearing full, authentic uniforms and engage sometimes in battle re-enactments.
I’ve attended a variety of events covering eras from Roman through Viking, English Civil War and up to the present.
I intend during this summer’s event season re-visit some of the groups I’ve represented and conduct short interviews. Some groups, such as the Viking, need less explaination as to their motivation than do, for example, the Wiking SS.

To be continued.
