On this site there are slide shows of the Festival of History organised by English Heritage in 2007 and 2010. Here are a further series of pictures of this event taken in 2009 from opposite ends of the time-line - The Ermine Street Guard and World War II and from the Medieval and Tudor periods. This event was a joy and attracted re-enactment groups from across the country. It is unfortunate that English Heritage has decided that it should be discontinued. Kelmarsh Hall has its own website.
