Our Military displays are based on extensive archaeological & historical research.
They range from one-man interpretations to large scale skirmishes.
Below are some of the military figures that are available for display.
Archery Displays have now been added to our range, where you can witness the use of & effects of medieval bows, longbows and crossbows.
