Life of Medieval Bowman Revealed (30th March 2015)

Shropshire Council rangers at Severn Valley Country Park are excited to welcome Medieval and Tudor Re-enactor, Kevin Goodman to the visitor centre on Thursday 9th April 7.30pm-9pm.

Kevin will be providing a fascinating look at the weapons and techniques the Medieval Bowman would use when in battle. Kevin will have up to 60 medieval arrow heads to help illustrate his talk along with crossbows & crossbow quarrels, a long bow, an early ‘hand gonne’ as well as many other items an archer would use.

As an experienced re-enactor and historical interpreter, Kevin brings the past to life for young and old while providing entertainment and education for the whole audience.

Visitor Centre manager Susie Comaish says, ‘Kevin visited the park last year and provided an entertaining look at surgical techniques from pre-history to the renaissance. We are happy to welcome him back to the park for a detailed look at the life and times of the medieval bowman. Visitors will be able to get a close look at the different artifacts Kevin will bring with him and well as enjoying hearing Kevin bring that time period to life.’

Booking is essential. Please call 01746 781 192.
