Château-Gontier is 1000 years old.

Our good old city is thousand years this year. To celebrate this event much demonstrations are and will be organized in this honor. On July 8 took place with the “Garden of the end of the world” (wink with Olivier) a medieval festival. I propose to you some portraits carried out during this festival.

Château-Gontier à 1000 ans. Notre bonne vieille cité à mille ans cette année. Pour fêter cet évenement beaucoup de manifestations sont et seront organisées en cet honneur. Le 8 Juillet avait lieu au "Jardin du bout du monde" (clin d'oeil à Olivier) une fête médiévale. Je vous propose quelques portraits réalisés pendant cette fête.

Bon anniversaire!

How accurate were the archers? Did they do any demonstrations of skill?

It has been amusing to look at modern versions of ancient armor. That first picture is wonderful, but my favorite is the armored child.

1000 years old! And I marvel at things here in the States that are a hundred years old. Certainly puts France and Europe in perspective for me. Congratulations and enjoy the festivities.

Answer to your questions Craver :

Thank you for your very relevant questions. People who took part with costumes are in fact of the specialists in the average age. Their weapons, clothing are produced with more close to reality of the time. The shooting with the arc with the means of the time is really impressive.
