Staff report

Fans of merry olde England dueled with foam swords last Saturday at the 48th Annual Whitman College Renaissance Faire. They rejoiced in many other ways in a similar spirit: donning period frocks, browsing medieval-themed wares, listening to Celtic music, watching jugglers and quaffing liquids and relishing repast. Here is a photographic glimpse of the festivities.

Grace Pyles ’18 majors in art and anthropology—and period fashion, at least for a day.

A representative from the locally based Czyhold Metal Designs demonstrates blacksmithing.

Mossyback Morris Men performs traditional dance.

Eric Anderson ’18 (center), an English major, strikes an historical pose along with other Whitties.

The next generation of medievalists plays the part.
