and the farbiest world wide
some clubs are farby, yes, but they are mostly the ones that only do combat and not the actual living history.
Such as Danelaw Medieval Society, they are only combat but their equipment is farby.
But people like me and Dave Sanders, dont like farby stuff one bit. We pretty much kick anyone out of the camp who has farby gear or they have to camp away from us, an exception was made to me because im injured.
And at Hastings in 2006, every single piece of gear that was brought onto the grounds by a reenactor had to be accurate to within a 15 year period, from 1050 to 1066. Whether it was chainmail whether it was a tooth pick, everything had to be historically accurate.
