the people of Kings Landing ~ Mosaic Monday





Kings Landing Historical Settlement, near Fredericton, NB, has a large staff that portray different characters in the homes, barns and other buildings.   They are knowledgeable about each person they represent as well as the house they 'live' in and must stay in character all the time.  If you know any of them personally they will not go out of character to recognize you.  The staff are hired for their knowledge, or are trained, in animal husbandry, handcrafting, cooking on wood stoves and over wood fires, black smithing, carpentry, etc.   There would be a lot to learn about life in the 1800's - without our modern day conveniences - so it's a great lesson in living history.




We do know this young lady.  :)  She and her brother grew up with our kids.



I am joining Judith at Lavender Cottage for Mosaic Monday

Blessings,
Pamela

  2. Hum, my first comment post disappeared. Anyway, Pam lovely post and always your pictures are a joy to look at. I love the surprised look on the pregnant ladies face as you caught her taking a wee rest. There is just something to be said about old school knitting by a lantern and I don't mean glasses. The braided rug is a memory for me, thanks

  6. Hi Pamela, that's a wonderful place to visit. We have a similar place near by. Fort Langley. But every time I visit I want to try the blacksmithing for myself...lol. Not allowed though.

  10. Historical reenactments like this are so much fun. We're taking a trip out east next summer and I'm researching places to visit - this might be one of them. We're definitely planning on Louisbourg so far. (There's a conference on PEI that my husband is attending in June and we're taking a couple of weeks before for vacation.)

    How fun to recognize someone who won't acknowledge you because it's not her role!

  16. We have lived similarly to that at times in our lives - though we would sometimes have a little extra convenience, like electricity, or water in the house - though not always at the same place. It was fun, the kids learned a lot and we enjoyed learning skills that we might not otherwise have learned. I still use the baking, cooking, gardening and canning knowledge, even though we live a fully electrified, computerized, modern life. Some things just don't go out of date.

    Your photos are lovely and it is just like being there.

  18. How interesting, Pamela, and what a fun job portraying the people of that time period! From the singing to the sewing, it all seems like we've travelled back in time. Thank you for the lovely photos of this magical place!

    Happy Monday!

  19. I think it would be cool to work at a place like King's Landing and get into period costume and life. Have you ever had the desire to do this Pam?
    Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday.

  21. What a fascinating place to visit. It is lovely that they were all working on seasonal things too. I have to say though that I am soooooo glad that I don't have to be in any sort of character when I am tour guiding as I would find that incredibly hard to do! xx

  30. This looks like a beautiful village, Pam! I love your photos! We have a place in our town very similar to this (Old Salem in North Carolina). It's pre-Revolutionary War era. It's also a living history museum, and I love to go there and just walk around and see the pretty gardens and buildings. It's so great that people are interested and serious about preserving these pieces of history, isn't it? Thanks for sharing with us and have a wonderful week!
