“This is a wonderful collection of images and texts which celebrates a very important modern English tradition.The Tewkesbury fair and battle re-enactment not only commemorate one of the great decisive military actions of our national history, but provide the best opportunity in present times for people to encounter a tangible sense of the Middle Ages. It provides not just a revived past which can be seen in all dimensions,but one which can be heard, felt and tasted as well.” Professor Ronald Hutton, Bristol University
