Black Knight Historical have delivered many Tudor education days over the last few years and are proud to present our activities in school.
A typical day would include a Royal visit from King Henry VIII or Queen Elizabeth I, with a suitable companion (Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn or Catherine of Aragon - Queen Elizabeth I and Sir Walter Raleigh).
Sessions may involve more than one educator as per your requirements - so students benefit from a carousel of activities on a variety of topics - such as music and dance, courtesy & etiquette, life in the Royal Palace, medicine & surgery, falconry & hunting, differences between rich and poor, food and warfare.
Our selection of objects for study amd handling is second to none- and we can finish off the day with a dislpay of longbow, crossbow and Tudor musket if conditions allow.
Should you prefer we can present a Soldier or Huntsman from 1545.
