Medieval Europe – The Age of Chivalry

Each of our History Alive Support Packages is designed with the teacher/educator  in mind. They are best used towards the end of the topic teaching when there is a good understanding of the basic curriculum points.

Having covered aspects such as the major countries in Medieval Europe, hierarchy and social models of the time, we will help cement that learning, create a memorable event and pull together the seperate areas of the topic.

Teacher Resources:

Before the BuccaneerBlades visit we will provide age specific teaching resources in a format requested (Downloads, file attachments or hard copies) that will support the visit. These may include worksheets, posters, wordsearches, activity pro-formas and “kit lists” for the day.


We can deliver the 2 hour session within the school environment ( a large classroom or school hall), or at a suitable educational visit site (with prior written agreement). Eg. Museum, battleground,cathedral, significant building. We will be bringing a range of costumes and props and will require a “backstage” area.

Typical Session layout:

  • Short introduction given in costume.
  • Demonstration of armour and/or swordfighting
  • Dress-up and role play using our equipment
  • Work sheets – interactive with the environment if on a visit
  • Activities – Resulting artefacts theirs to take home. Eg. Coat of Arms.

Please contact us for pricelists and availability or to tailor make the session.
