BMF Talk - Toni Mount - How to Survive in Medieval England

*A Bosworth Medieval Festival Ticket must be purchased to attend this talk*

Imagine you were transported back in time to Medieval England and had to start a new life there. Without mobile phones, ipads, internet and social media networks, when transport means walking or, if you’re fortunate, horse-back, how will you know where you are or what to do? Where will you live? What is there to eat? What shall you wear? How can you communicate when nobody speaks as you do and what about money? Who can you go to if you fall ill or are mugged in the street? However can you fit into and thrive in this strange environment full of odd people who seem so different from you?

All these questions and many more are answered in Toni’s new guide book for time travellers: How to Survive in Medieval England.

A handy self-help guide with tips and suggestions to make your visit to the Middle Ages much more fun, this lively and engaging talk will help you deal with the new experiences you may encounter and the problems that might occur. Know the laws so you don’t get into trouble or show your ignorance in an embarrassing faux pas.

Toni Mount is your guide through Medieval England in this thought-provoking talk.

Tickets are £8 and can now only be purchased on site during the Festival.
