of people play in, and up where I live and play, everyone plays
vikings, mogols or something to wear heavy clothes as it is a hot day
at 70F. The normal range of history that the Society is interested in
is primarily between 600 and 1600(give or take a few years), and most
places did not have forks. That said, I blacksmith them for cooking
over the open fires frequently.
- As far as I know nothing designates it as 'Yul'. This lady simply had her feast gear at the 'Yul' is what I heard her to say. For my T W O pence worth or were they ducats:(I promise you I know nothing of Irish money) I believe the Irish like the peoples in the Norse lands were slow to adopt the fork. The Irish seem despite their proximity to have been fairly cut off from the goings on in Europe and were slow in adopting anything European preferring to continue their Gaelic traditions in stead.
