Bon Accord – Festivalgoers to this year’s Harvest Days festival had an opportunity to be entertained in an historic was Saturday morning. The Knights of the Northern Realm put on a battle re-enactment for attendees. The Edmonton-based co-ed club studies authentic combat techniques, period armour, historical garments, and medieval history, combining the knowledge into authentic re-enactments of medieval warfare. Saturday’s demonstration combined archers and swordsman battling it out in a contest between Scotland and England. Scotland, unsurprisingly, was the victor for the Bon Accord event.
