1. Medieval-World-Convention is a totally new concept of a medieval event. As
the original meaning of the word "Convent" (lat. "Meeting"),
we understand the 1.Medieval-Convention, as a meeting of everyone linked/interested
in the middle ages. It doesn't matter if archeologist, historian, reenactor, hobbyist
or interested laymen. Everyone is welcome, the more participate, the more interesting
the event will be for everyone. Additionally the duration of the event: So that
it's worth travelling even from far away, the convention will last 10 days with
the option of attending only 5 days. Special features: Instead of a medieval market
we will construct a craftsmen village, organized by the guilds, all carpenters/wood
workers are located together, or all smithmen can be found in one alley... All
camps will be installed around Jerusalem (The center of the world in those days).
An extraordinary place: The ruined castle "Eisenberg" celebrates 700.
anniversary and 5 more medieval castles frame this location, which grasslands
offer enough space to an event of this scale. This is a "private" event:
The Convention is not accesible for anyone, during the week only registered participants
are allowed, on the week-ends it's possible to attend for any registered guest
to attend. Always under the following condition: Every participant has to be registered
to our own network.|
order to offer an interesting programm to the inernational participants, there
will be a "Convention-Academy" with a widely scaled offer of courses
and workshops. Every participant can offer courses or lectures. The complete programm
can be found online, and can be booked online as well. In order to faciliate and
to be able to better organize the participation, there is an application in English,
French & German, with which you can preorder daily needs, the whole academy
programm, and all practical and helpful information, like forecast, shuttlebus-connections
from Munich airport or the station in Eisenberg to the convention area.
whole event location will have a Wifi-connection (via satellite), which is included
in the participation fee.
this concept the application as well as our own social network can be used with
the biggest benefit for organizing this convention. In "Jerusalem" we
will recreate an oriental bazar/souk, as well as create the convention center.
Whole Jerusalem will be covered with canvas and coupoles. The whole atmosphere
shall be recreated the most detailed as possible. Depending on the number of participants
we will be reconstructing gates of the wall with artifical stonework. There will
be also a medieval peasent market with all basic food like bread, vegetables,
fruits, fresh milk, meat, fish aso. To the east of Jerusalem, all medieval bathing
houses will be placed. Linked to them will be the main sanitary area. Over the
whole area there will be up to 8 more sanitary facilities, depending on the number
of participants, with Dixi-toilets, water in containers and firewood.
live Google-map will be updated every week. There will be marked all groups, craftsmen
and any other participant (except individuals due to privacy and dataprotection
laws - unless preferred to). We will have a poll about how often we should have
the convention. Whether everey 2, 3, 4 or 5 years. Along with the convention we
will create a new international federation for reenactment "VITA HISTORICA".
The main theme of the convention is set for participants who orient with reenacting
the period between 400-1500 AD. Everyone should try to recreate the highest authentic
level as possible, but it's not absolutely necessary. For all non era equipment
there will be a possibility to camp on the parking area. The convention area is
exclusively reserved for historic equipment. Electricity will only be in "Jerusalem"
and in the tavern-area in "Skandinavia". A dovecote next to Jerusalem
will hold a recharging station for all cellphones, GPS, cameras & tablets,
where all participants can recharge their devices for a small fee. In order to
present information about living-history projects from all over the world, there
will be an infromation-tent in any country-camp. This can be the "Castle
region Allgäu" for Germany or "Guédelon" for France
