Mission Statement

Camlann Medieval Village, a living history museum project portraying rural England in the year 1376, is dedicated to offering the public powerful personal experiences of history, including multiple learning and performing arts opportunities, built upon research of rural communities in 14th century England, to provide a deeper understanding of the relationship between those historical events and western society today.

Description

Well into its third decade of operation, the Camlann Medieval Association is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that invites the public to step within its gates to a historically constructed medieval English village. The inn presents a dinner theater performance year-round at which the adventurous may sample medieval food and be serenaded by a noble's (ex) minstrel. Feasts there are also throughout the year, centering around historic holidays and festivals. From May through September the village is open every Saturday and Sunday as a living history museum, where history’s explorers can interact with 14th century villagers to experience their crafts and daily lives. One weekend a month Camlann showcases a medieval festival, with varied entertainments including minstrels, magicians, swordsmen, and seasonally specific historical activities. Sumptuous feasts fit for noble folk follow each festival day. Passionately devoted to history and puzzling out the details of how and why our ancestors did things the way they did, the Association emphasizes historical accuracy in its construction, activities, and villager interpretations as the best way to experience a close encounter with the middle ages.
