Profile Information

About Me:
I am 66 years of age, a Woodsman and a writer. I enjoy historical trekking. My period of interest is 1680-1760. I live with my family in Wychwood Forest, New England, NSW, Australia. I am godfather to an Ojibwe man, Running Deer, who is like a son to me, and blood Brother to his Father and Uncle. Certain group members gave me the honorary title of Captain of scouts, for the work I have done within the group, which I am very pleased to have. My blood brothers gave me the name of Le Loup, though I am an English Woodsman. I am also the group's primitive skills instructor.
Relationship Status:
New England Colonial Living History Group 1680-1760.
Re-enactment/Living History Periods:
1700-1760. This period of interest also requires some research into the 17th century.
Contact Details:
Post Rider: Keith H. Burgess, "Wychwood Forest", MSF 2007, Armidale 2350, NSW, Australia.

Trying To Explain Who We Are And What We Do!

An Explanation of Living History that I hope you can understand!

I met a chap and his lovely wife today to talk about what we do in our group, and I have the feeling that once again I failed to get across what it is we actually do. I will attach a video here, just photos of the fort and the people in it but you have to understand that although this fort is an important part of New World history, it is also the playground of 18th Century Living Historians.

And that is what we are,… Continue

Thanks for the invite, but as you have guessed, I have too little time to get involved in yet another forum. ;o) Your invitation is highly appreciated though.

Cheers Keith, I do sometimes wonder how such recent history can become so sanitised. It amazes me to think that people really believe the Waffen-SS and the camp SS were two separate entities and un-associated with each other and that as such, it is perfectly ok to portray them. I understand that there are some groups that portray the ethnic cleansing in the former Yugoslavia..... what is all that about...

hi Keith, been a while, glad to see you made through the summer, Up here in Montana, we had a mild simmer, didn't hardly get into the 80's on the forth of July, and we had rain and snow up high 2 weeks later, so I guess summer is long over. liked your tomahawk throwing video, keep yer' powder dry, and I'll see ya' up the trail.

Yep I'm still a Reb webfoot. I'm enjoying it though and I think I'll just kinda stick with this time period for now. I know it's a rather narrow focus; but; I can't let the hobby consume my life.
How about you? Still doing the 17th-18th century?
At 6:53 on March 11, 2010, Dan Highley said…
those were the good old days!! I'm just glad that I live in Montana where we still have an open carry law; I can still strap one and go about my business and that can be a comforting feeling in Griz country. ;)
