Huntingdon Medieval Festival

Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! I got hold of an instrument of pointy death! :D


I've finally uploaded nearly a hundred pictures from the Huntingdon Medieval Festival - starting here and moving on to newer photos. (Edited to add: I've done some flickr organisation & now have a set for those photos.) I tried to do something clever with the photos' filenames to get them in the right order on flickr, but as it just works on last time the file was modified it didn't quite work, so there are a few out of order :/

Obviously I think you should look at them all - these are all either the best pics or show something entertaining or both :) But a couple of highlights from several of the sections:
