It was a brilliantly sunny but wildly blustery day when our Black Wolf medieval group erected their handmade medieval Bedouin tent.
It was a quick dry run just to make sure all was in good working order, so they hastily gathered pegs and ropes, mats and tent and set to work.
First they laid out everything on the grass, ensuring all fabrics and accoutrements were in the right positions.
Then they started inserted poles and lashing ropes, slowly raising the Bedouin tent one part at a time.
Winds buffeted and billowed the great swaths of fabric, but Ann, Neil, Jess, Robbie and Alex persevered until every peg was hammered and every rope tied.
Once the tent was up, temporary pegs (we normally use medieval ones) were pounded deep into the grass to hold the bucking tent in place.
At last everything was in place and the medieval Bedouin tent stood strong and steadfast in the wild winds.
I can’t wait to sleep in it for the first time next weekend. 🙂
Have you ever seen a Bedouin tent before?
