Profile Information

About Me:
From all the things I've done untill now, it was the Middle Ages that brought me to love Re-enacting and made me study everything about medieval history specially about food and clothing in that period.

I have developed a medieval garden in the 1st group I was in and then been the camp cook in another former group for 2 years where I've developed my own recipes. You can visit my research about this interest of mine on and read an article I've wrote for the e-zine "The Re-enactor", issue nr. 35.
Also have been invited to write an article for Skirmish magazine; you can find it on the issue nr. 98.

I also have been invited to give workshops on this subject already, as on medieval clothing. My research on this you can fnd under:

Having been in so many different medieval groups I decided to start my own and I am now the founder of Guildas Aureas( a group interested in re-enacting different crafts that have existed as guilds in the Middle Ages, since 2009.

After having been the vice-president for 2 years and having been a weaving enthusiast (built my own warp-weighted weaving loom), I've I've added another time period, after having been given the chance to shoot a real bullet from a flintlock pistol in 2009. It's the Napoleonic battle re-enactment and that I'm re-enacting with the fine people of the 43rd Monmouthshire Light Infantry since 2011.

Yet again I find myself researching beyond clothing and answering all my questions on how did people lived back then, specially the social-political conditions of Portugal in the time frame between the late c. 18th and the early c. 19th, which has been my main focus. It's not easy. I seem to spend my free time in archives and libraries. More on that you can read at:

Since October 5th 2006, when I started re-enacting, untill now and (a short period!)I have done quite a few things, from developing a garden to cooking, weaving and writing, but what I have been enjoying the most is the living history side of re-enactment and getting to understand the way of life back then. To understand how societies worked is what I like the most about History.

Right now I consider myself as a result of my love for daggers, weaving, gardening, sewing, cooking, shooting and spending my free time researching. Might add yet another time-period, belive it or not.

But I have only one thing to say:
I WANT A CASTLE! (or fort..) ;)
- 43rd MLI
- Guildas Áureas
Re-enactment/Living History Periods:
- Peninsula Wars
- 12th - 15th century
