BR about Schaffhausen

When we were preparing our event in Schaffhausen, a TV crew from Bavaria got in touch. They wanted to follow a reenactor through the event and they wanted to team him up with a reporter to give their audience an inside view.

The fantastic cloisters and herb garden of Schaffhausen

When I arrived on-site I was a little shocked to find, upon entering the camp, that all was quiet. A few shapes moved in the shadows – none I recognised. The setting is superb: medieval cloisters and garden. The camp was set up and the kitchen in place, operational but abandoned. But where was everybody? No noise, no bustle, no soldiery, no guards or traders or public. It was a bit unnerving.
