THE SEALED KNOT WEB SITE  http://www.thesealedknot.org.uk/index.asp

 

Internet contact web site of
the premier English. (And Scottish / Irish)  Civil War Re-enactment
Society in the United Kingdom -  The site provides advice on how to get
involved in mid-17th century re-creation activity, and provides contacts
for local groups and regiments for all local towns and regions.  The
site offers a history of the 1637-1660 Stuart Monarchy - Cromellian
conflict period, and provides an excellent fast moving forum known as
'the beer tent' in keeping with the beer tents enjoyed at public shows
by Sealed Knot members. Online, people can discuss all aspects of Civil
War history and re-staging activity. Civilian life is also represented
in living history fourums and you can learn how to get involved in
living history events yourself. There are many dramatic colourful
photographs on the site taken at Sealed Knot shows. The Sealed Knot
stages large and small events, which are both entertaining and highly
educational. They also provide details of public speakers and experts on
the history of the period. Their shows recreate the times when medieval
gave way to modern, when sword and pike were only just being
overshadowed by cannons and muskets. They present, in three dimensions
the time when Kingship came into violent conflict with republicanism,
and religious, social and political division tore families asunder and
pitched brother against brother. Thankfully, the soldiers of the Sealed
Knot are a friendly, helpful bunch, who drink and laugh together before
and after battles. Their website has a very sociable feel, and there is
a highly active members only section for those who join the society. The
website is an ideal starting point for anyone wanting to know if the
Sealed Knot are fighting a battle in their area, which they can go along
to watch, and for students who want to research battles and fashion and
other features of the period. The Knot produces six issues per year of a
journal, Orders Of The Daye which has articles on both history and
re-enactment activity, and many articles are reproduced on the website,
as well as a number of other expert articles. The site provides a list
of recommended books for further study and useful links to other Civil
War sites. If you want to see a Civil War show, or take part in such
activity, this is definitely the site for you. http://www.thesealedknot.org.uk/index.asp
