Greywolf’s series of lectures are tailored for each appropriate age group, kindergarten through adults, and presented in a format that is a clear and enlightening look at the reality of medieval life without focusing on the gore and carnage that is usually associated with lectures of this type.
These lectures feature authentic handcrafted weapons and antiques, period costumes, practical demonstrations, and audience participation. It is truly a hands-on experience for all ages.
