A Serjeant-at-Arms from the Tower of London visits Ewell to tell you how you become a Knight. Sent away from home at the age of 7 to the castle of a wealthy Lord, you will begin your training as a Page learning combat skills and horsemanship until you are 14. Between then and 21 you become a squire, capable of engaging in battle and if you fight bravely you may be made a Knight.
Our visitor will bring weapons for you to master and teach you how to defend and attack a castle.
