Troy Depue, creator of Medieval Facts, will share his knowledge on Medieval history. Learn about the different kinds of armor and weapon types, such as swords, axes and flails. Hear stories about the real Dracula, Vlad Dracul III, and how he's still the hero of Transylvania. Learn the real stories about William Wallace and Joan of Arc. And let us not forget the importance of the Medieval Jesters -- were they just about laughs or courtly intrigue?
Troy will also discuss the relationship between historical reenactment and cosplay. A question and answer segment will follow the presentation, along with an informal meet and greet of like-minded Medieval history lovers.
Attendees are encouraged to wear Medieval attire to enhance the event.
