My son’s history class took a field trip to Orlando to see the Medieval Times. Since Sir Husband will never take me, I decided I needed to tag along. After all I am royalty and I will feel right at home. Let’s start with a photo to help you put things into perspective.
Here is the Queen and her royal son.
Now keep that image in your head.
The first thing we did was tour my the village. We got to see the Blacksmith. Remind me to make him work harder. I can tell he is faking it here.
Below is a raincoat. I like to have all my subjects dressed appropriately for the weather. Nothing but the best for those peasants.
Next we see the place where all the clothing are made. All equipment you see in these buildings are authentic. This woman said, since they were the first to open a Medieval Times, they were able to get at the equipment first. 🙂 This is an 800 year old loom.
Now this thing below was in the kitchen. Behind the sign that says “Do Not Touch” is a hole. Can anyone guess what this is?
Updated: The above piece of furniture is a baby walker. You put the baby in the hole and the wooden thing can slide back and forth while the baby walks. Very modern if I do say so myself. 😀
The hall below is on the way to the torture chamber. Yes, I am Queen, but I didn’t know this was going on. It was very creepy. It surprises us that God didn’t just wipe out the human race. Remember what I said above. All this equipment is authentic. These were actually used. I only took a few photos in this area.
This is a Head Crusher. You can guess just how it is used. All of these torture equipment pieces were used to make you confess to crimes you didn’t commit or to convert to Cathlic. Once you converted to Cathlic, they killed you so you wouldn’t convert back to your heathen ways.
In case you can’t visualize how the Head Crusher, or any other torture equipment was used, They have pictures for you.
After we tour my the village, we take our seat inside the tournament area. We are seated in the RED section. WooHoo!
OH LOOK! The tournament is about to begin. Shhhhh, everyone! This is going to be good!!
