Mountfitchet Castle

We explored another castle and museum Monday. It was fantastic-the Medieval realism displays were especially educational. 
 Can you imagine having to spin your own wool, to then sew each garment by hand? Every. Single. Stitch.



A knight is always welcome around these parts.




 Medieval armour was anything but comfortable... (yuck!)





After a long day we needed a "wee snack" then headed home.

 Mia could only talk of castles and knights the rest of the evening. 





Fancy a taste of Medieval knowledge, history, romance, and background?
 Read any of Elizabeth Chadwick's novels and you will be whisked into a world gone by.
 I couldn't put down A Place Beyond Courage.
