The Battle for Wales was re-enacted at Goodrich Castle, Herefordshire over the weekend of 21st / 22nd August 2004. Here you can view some of the photographs I took at the event, which is also covered in the 24th August edition of 'Wyenot News'.


The Plantaganet Society - organizers of the event.

'Historic Supplies,' from whom I purchased a fine medieval hat and shirt at the event.

Jenna, a medieval knight rides out, preparing for the jousting tournament, which is about to take place to please King Henry IV of England.

The crowds, encouraged by Friar Timbrell, enthusiastically waved flags to cheer on their favourite knight, amid cries of, 'Kill the Frenchman!' (After all, they did cheat at Hastings.)

Evans' lance, captured on film shattering as he is victorious over his opponent, Jenna during the jousting tournament.

Prince Hal, future king of England, Henry V, who was later wounded in the face by an arrow at the Shrewsbury Battle for Wales in 1403.

Later that same day . . . Hal, Prince of Wales' day may have started out well but later, he is wounded in the face by a Welsh arrow and has to leave the battle field.

Arrows rain down on the battlefield and, as both sides engage in combat.
