History Boot Camp


Make Your Own Charcoal!

Or "What I Did At The Week End" by Flightless Bird, aged 13 and a half....(I wish!)

I drank a lot of good beer at £2 a pint and got ever so slightly sunburnt playing and learning stuff in a 96 acre playground. Stuff like bashing red-hot metal into useful things like a poker, how to link metal rings together to make maille, and how to safely load and fire a variety of black-powder weapons...
