Household of Sir Anthony Woodville
philosopher, poet, soldier, dreamer, and Renaissance man ahead of his time, Lord Scales and later Earl Rivers
are a living history and battle re-enactment group covering the "Wars
of the Roses" period.
Founded in Hampshire in the early nineties the group now draws members from all over the United Kingdom. The group has gone from strength to strength in recent years, becoming increasingly more 'authentic' and gaining many more members.
This site is an introduction to our group, its activities and re-enactment in general. It is intended to provide information and updates to members, new starters and anyone thinking of joining a fifteenth century group.
There is a link to the Wars of the Roses Federation site where more information can be found about other retinues or households and the many events which take place each year. Click on the Tudor Rose to visit this site, click "Home" when you have finished
If you get lost click 'Home' at the top of the list on the left, and you'll return here.
If you are thinking of joining a group please feel free to browse the site and contact us
