Libušín, April 2010
Medieval encampment of various period, from early roman to late gothic, market place and great battle of all man-at-arms. No reconstruction of real battle, just big gathering of all admirers of history.

The Battle of Maxen (20 November 1759) was a battle at Maxen, Saxony in present-day Germany during the Seven Years' War. It resulted in surrender of Prussian corps.
The Prussian corps of 14,000 men, commanded by Friedrich August von Finck (one of Frederick the Great's generals), was sent to threaten lines of communication between the Austrian army at Dresden and Bohemia. Field Marshal Count Daun attacked and defeated isolated Finck's corps on 20 November 1759 with his army of 40,000 men. The next day (21 November) Finck decided to surrender.
A knight rides the field at the 2006 Abbey Medieval Tournament
The 18th Abbey Medieval Tournament is to be held on the weekend of 7th & 8th July 2007.
(from their website: [link] )
The Abbey Tournament is the largest and most authentic medieval festival in Australia; a week of festivities culminating in two days of enthralling pageantry, music, dance, arts and crafts and breath-taking displays of knightly prowess. The Tournament spans a thousand years from the Dark Ages of Europe to the Byzantine courts and on to the High Middle Ages or the flamboyant world of the Turkish Janissaries; from bewitching gypsy dance troupes to the ferocious Vikings.
