English Heritage - Festival of History 2005

Bill Crumbleholme made an appearance at English Heritage's big living history event at Kelmarsh near Northampton. With help from his family, Bill demonstrated firing Bronze Age pottery in a bonfire and displayed beakers and urns made by him.
The event was attended by thousands of people, it featured displays of Knights Jousting, Stonehenge was rebuilt and several battles were fought by reenactment groups of Romans, Vikings, Civil War and more recent armies. The work of English Heritage and other organizations was explained.

Bill’s bonfire drew the crowds, especially when the weather turned unpleasant. He showed how beakers and urns were fired inside a raging bonfire and helped to portray life in the Bronze Age.
