Set in 1190, Richard Coeur de Lion, King of England has embarked on the Third Crusade and has called upon his subjects to set forth and join him. Arundel Castle guards the road linking the Medieval ports of Shoreham, Pagham, and Portsmouth. The Castle defends access to the sea via the River Arun, providing a logical mustering point for men, supplies and equipment setting out for the Continent. Set within a historical tented encampment, Raven Tor Living History Group will recreate the crafts, weapons training, and battle tactics of the period. With falconry a Story Teller, and archery demonstrations the weekend will be filled with the sights, sounds and smells of the late Norman Period.
