Gryphon Poursuivant

 

Reenactment troupe: The mission of Gryphon Poursuivant is to bring the history of the European Renaissance to life. Our goal is to educate both the young and old on the daily life of a siege encampment. To this end, we diligently try to incorporate all daily living activities along with the military aspect of a company of siege engineers. We offer various interactive areas including cooking, brewing, use of siege weapons, small arms and armor, indoor and outdoor games and simple musical instruments.  In the end we strive to have the patron walk away with a better sense of how people lived and functioned in a mobile military siege encampment during the 16th century.
