Schiltron mediaeval re-enactment group

Schiltron Mediaeval Reenactment GroupSchiltron, Aberdeen's premier mediaeval re-enactment group, has been operating since 2004, and during that time has performed in many venues portraying Scottish life of the mediaeval era. The group covers the late 13th and early 14th Century period of William Wallace and Robert the Bruce, and also the 15th Century, when plate armour was at its peak.

Mediaeval Ladies Members depict the domestic, commercial and military sides of life of those times at public events and re-enactments, and in the off-season meet together to learn mediaeval skills, such as: longbow, crossbow, spear work, swordsmanship, horse-riding, designing and preparing new costumes, music, wool spinning and, of course, attending feasts. Participants develop their own adopted mediaeval personas, and construct a name and background for their alter ego, which fits in with the assumed history of the group as a whole. A vast range of roles are available, ranging from the higher echelons of society of the knight and his lady, to the lesser mortals such as the barber surgeon or seller of relics: the opportunities to portray life of the era are boundless.

Over the last few years, Schiltron mediaeval re-enactment group has appeared at various locations in Scotland: Castles Fraser and Drum in Aberdeenshire, Traquair House and House of the Binns near Edinburgh, Bannockburn, Arbroath, Crieff and Lanark, as well as at several locations in Aberdeen itself. Outside Scotland, members have participated at the Battles of Tewkesbury and Bosworth in England, and attended La Fete des Ramparts in Brittany, France.
