Companions of the Crow

Who we are

We are a medieval re-enactment group based in Oxfordshire. Focusing around the 15th Century War of the Roses period we join in with large multi society shows as well as performing our own. Book us here.

We do also re-enact other periods on occasion. Our season is very active filled with lots of shows and a full schedule of indoor training sessions through the winter.

Battle Re-enactment

Our primary hobby is re-creating medieval battles. Medieval re-enactment as a hobby really comes into its own when you gather multiple society's together for a large show.

The scene is a rich tapestry of sight sound and smell as the drums beat and soldiers march onto field with plate and chain clanking. Shortly after the opposing forces line up cannon fire and gunpowder smoke blow past and volleys of arrows shower down from above. Then a clash of steal as the commanders send their regiments of foot soldiers in to finish the job.

Living History

As well as on the field there is action off the field. As many men in arms there are people in the camp preparing for the evening after battle. Using authentic methods to cook meals for the armies.

You will also find craftsmen using age old techniques to fletch arrows, wind yarn or even repair armour.

The Crows have the ability to re-create a scene of a temporary village that would pop up beside a battlefield to support the marching armies.

Tournaments

Often a good way to create a lot of excitements around a smaller event is to put on a tournament. With 4 or more fighters wanting to prove their worth and bringing crowed participation in to decide the victors a tournament display is fun for the re-enactors and the audience.
