Cardiff Castle Garrison are pleased to have been involved in the Early Medieval Alliance’s show at Caldicot Castle over the past weekend (30th and 31st August). There was, as always, a wonderful selection of traders there including some of our favourites like Bernie the Bolt and Herts Fabric. We did quite a bit of shopping there;buying various lovely-quality wools, and some brass accessories. Several of our members were also involved in the battle between the Welsh and English forces which amassed at the castle. We look forward to seeing you all there next year.

Hi Everyone, I am the current Treasurer for the Cardiff Castle Garrison. I'm interested in all thing living history including crafts, textiles, cookery and daily life in the medieval period, with a particular emphasis on late 14th Century fashion. I am currently a 3rd year Geology and Physical Geography student at USW. In my spare time I like to spend time horse riding and am hoping to start riding side saddle in the near future.
