Ancient battle in Moscow Region

Tuesday, 13 July 2010 17:05

Fans of Russian history have staged mass battles, revived ancient iron production technology and played the old Russian bat and ball game (lapta) at the Gorodetskoye Gulbishche 2010 festival.
Members of historical reenactment clubs have reproduced the ancient atmosphere and way of life. They built a special tent camp for the two days of the festival near Podolsk, Moscow Region.
The participants of the large-scale reenactment said that all elements of the Gulbishche event, from costumes to weapons, depicted real historical artifacts in detail.
The reconstruction area also featured different trades such as a potter’s, a weaver’s and a blacksmith’s shops, with each of them reproducing the ancient production technology. The battle on the field, where hundreds of warriors wearing ancient armor fought, was the event’s highlight. Blunt blades were used in the fights, but injuries can still happen in the heat of the battle, so doctors watched from the sidelines.
The participants of such battles say that these events help them relax from the bustle of the city, get the adrenaline pumping and experience the way Russian medieval warriors felt.
The organizers of the Gorodetskoye Gulbishche event plan to build a museum near Moscow reproducing the atmosphere of ancient and medieval Rus.
