## Bardic Performances
We are fortunate to have many talented musicians and singers, storytellers, poets and actors who will entertain at most of our events. We have choral perfomances at formal occasions, we sing drinking songs full of life and good cheer after great feasts, instrumental music wafts through the evening air at campsites. Stories are told at the fireside, plays are performed under the open sky at Raglan fair, dancers wheel and step and turn in Great halls. We have magicians and jugglers and puppeteers, all manner of performing arts from the Middle Ages can be found in the Society.

They say camping is guaranteed to give anyone great appetite and in Insulae Draconis we know exactly what a hungry camper needs. even if you're not spending a weekend under canvas many events include elements of outdoor cooking, for example we've had salmon cooked on stakes over a firefor lunch. We've had venison, spit roasted under many a blue - and not so blue - sky, wafting delicious aromas to whet many an appetite. At Raglan Castle every year people from all over the Isles camp and cook for ten days with wood fires in fireboxes and some have researched historical pots, fireboxes, cooking irons and will gladly demonstrate to anyone who is interested.

### Target Archery
<img src="/images/archery/snowontarget.jpg" class="rounded float-md-end m-2" alt="Snow on an archery target" />
<img src="/images/archery/snowontarget.jpg" class="rounded shadow float-md-end m-2" alt="Snow on an archery target" />
The SCA – in order to be as true to times as possible – encourage the use of materials and methods available to period archers, so we focus on wood and feathers in our bows and arrows and do not allow modern compound bows. Target Archery concentrates on getting the archers shooting at a static target at various distances.  We have a variety of <a href="{% link activities/archery/shoots.md %}">fun shoots</a> but the basic idea is that points are scored by shooting at a bullseye from a standing position on a clear field. Unlike rapier and heavy combat, archery is suitable for supervised children who are old enough to draw and safely shoot a bow, so it is a useful activity when you're bringing the family to an event. Please note it is very important that they are aware they must pay attention to what the marshal says at all times.
### Field Archery

<img src="/images/archery/fieldshoot2.jpg" width="300" class="rounded shadow float-md-end m-2" alt="Field shoot" />
These are shoots where we try to mimic situations faced by medieval archers: Shooting around the trunk of a tree, in wooded landscapes, using 3-D models or firing through castle windows and arrow slots at targets below. The happen less commonly than target archery but are hugely enjoyable. You can test your skills at things like a William Tell shoot: could you shoot an apple off someone's head? (where that someone not a real live breathing person, of course!) Loaner equipment is usually available, but do check in advance with a practice marshal and, if you are attending an event, make sure you've let someone on the event team know you need loaner equipment well when you book!
### Thrown Weapons

<img src="/images/archery/thrownknives.jpg" width="300" class="rounded shadow float-md-end m-2" alt="Throwing knives in a target" />
At some events and practices you might get the chance to try your skill with throwing knives or axes and spears,  in a safe, marshaled environment. Typically the target is a large board or stump, though sometimes there may be a custom target with a special emphasis in keeping with an event or persoanlity. If there is a planned throwing event at an event there will usually be loaner knives or axes available to try it out, and you'll be given safety tips and rules to follow before you start.  It’s great fun, ask  your local archery marshal!

Probably some of the most iconic images of the Society for Creative Anachronism have involved armoured combatants in full face helmets and armour, their personal heraldry painted large on their shields. . Armoured combat (also commonly refered to as heavy fighting) is thrilling to watch, either in tournaments between individuals or roving teams of fighters in melees. In Insulae Draconis our fighter take all the opportunities they can find to storm castles, most notably at our large annual camping event held annually for the last many years at Raglan Castle. Throughout the Society it is armoured combat tournaments that decide the next royalty, and this is true for our Principality too: A fighter may fight to become Prince or Princess in their own right at Coronet Tourney, an event held twice a year at different events throughout the Principality (see the [Coronet]({% link coronet/coronet-tourney.md %}) section for more information.)

Armoured combat requires armour, but instead of steel weapons the weapons are usually made from rattan. Combat itself uses a scoring system based on honor and chivalry; the fighters declare a blow they receive &quot;good&quot; themselves, based on the angle, location, and force of the strike. Bouts are overseen by Heavy marshals, and all fighters must attend to their instructions at all times. It is the duty of the marshals to ensire all armour and weaponry is safe to use and meets society standards.

The weapons used in our armored combat activities are largely made out of rattan poles - these look and feel very much like large, solid bamboo poles. Replica weapons, for example axes, might be made instead from rubber and foam. Weapons must be passed by a marshal before every fight.

With archery we seek to foster the skills developed for entertainment, hunting, and combat as practiced across the medieval period. Archery equipment and techniques varied widely across the area from western Europe, through the middle east to China and Japan, providing a great deal of options for interested archers to explore and reseach. We use traditional bows and wooden arrows with feather fletchings for target and field shoots.

Whether you enjoy being front and center at Court as the voice of their Highnesses, or you prefer a quieter vantage, working with names and Arms, banners and flags, there is no doubt every event is brought to life by the work of all the heralds. Heralds will help you with Court, Tournament lists and how to choose the perfect name for your persona and the Coat of Arms to represent you, your household or your branch. Heralds can also advise you about ceremony, titles and court etiquette (They're also great people to ask for help with voice projection and thinking on your feet in front of crowds!)

Fencing is the perfect way to study, replicate and compete with styles of light, heavy and cut-and-thrust weapon sword-fighting found in Europe during the Renaissance period. This is not fencing in the Olympic style, this is based on ever expanding avenues of research with actual historical manuals. It is an exciting, fast sport with plenty of style - fighter fight in period clothes - where fighters use blunted steel swords and a variety of off-hand defensive items.
