Rentapeasant – Living History With Livestock – /about.html: “Rent a Peasant was started after several years’ peripheral involvement with other Living History and Re-Enactment groups. The Silver Jarls of the Dunholm and Northumbria branches of the Vikings, in particular, were a formative influence. While an undergraduate, Paul had been asked to provide authentic banquets. An interest in the meat led to an interest in the animals and an invitation to take some sheep to Lindisfarne in 1993 for the 1200th anniversary of the first Viking raid there. This saw the first hasty costume research and even more hasty costume making. There are many faults with these early outfits but they will not be replaced until they fall apart!”
