Our wonderful in-house artist Yasemin has imagined our figurehead come to life, with a very shiny nose! (This would certainly have been a very handy way to avoid the fog, whirlpools, icebergs and heavy storms the Elizabethan crew encountered on their circumnavigation.) Happy Christmas from all of us here at The Golden Hinde!

It's a rather different #Christmas for many of us this year, but we're taking inspiration from the original Golden Hinde crew who found a novel way to celebrate, far from home... In fact, the more we discover about a Tudor Christmas, the more things seem relatively straightforward today! Check out the eye-opening customs here... https://buff.ly/2M2QHOL

#OnThisDay in 1577, #FrancisDrake began his historic circumnavigation of the globe... In our special video; we unearth the treasure, danger and discovery (not to mention the intrigue, piracy and scandal) behind the infamous voyage!

Discover the historic voyage of the first English ship to sail around the globe in our new video series!

In 1577 England was known as a 'nation of pirates'. In this context, #FrancisDrake circumnavigated the world, returning three years later aboard The Golden Hinde - a ship laden with treasure and suddenly steeped in scandal...
But his violent actions and theft of unimaginable treasures contributed to growing tensions between England and Spain which would ultimately result in the Spanish Armada and war!
How did Drake's acts of piracy earn him a knighthood? In our first Circumnavigation video we meet the main players, entering a world of Elizabethan intrigue, where pirates, sea-battles and skullduggery await!

#OnThisDay 1542, Mary, Queen of Scots was born. A hugely divisive figure in Tudor and Elizabethan politics: she was tried and beheaded in 1587 for plotting to assassinate Queen Elizabeth! Her execution was the final catalyst for Philip II's invasion of England... The Spanish Armada!

This week's #FolkloreThursday theme is #childlore and #children for #ChildrensDay2020 on 20th November! The compliment "You son of a GUN!" originates from babies born on the gun-deck of a ship: traditionally the most spacious and well-located space on board, in the days of sail!

#OnThisDay in 1558, #QueenElizabethI ascended the English throne at age 25. She became #FrancisDrake's ultimate patron, eventually having him knighted aboard the #GoldenHinde in 1581... She would refer to him as her 'Little Pirate'!

#OnThisDay 1603, Queen Elizabeth's 'other' bold adventurer & distant relative of #FrancisDrake: Sir Walter Raleigh was put on trial for allegedly plotting against James I. He spoke so well at his trial that he became a public hero & his execution was delayed: he lived 'legally dead' for the next 15 years...
Pardoned in 1617, #SirWalterRaleigh was released from the Tower of London to seek the fabled city of gold: El Dorado... Where he ill-advisedly ransacked a Spanish outpost in violation of the fragile peace treaty of 1604. This recklessness must have run in the family!
Raleigh was beheaded in 1618. "Let us dispatch", he said to his executioner... "This is a sharp Medicine, but it is a Physician for all diseases and miseries." His downfall from hero to criminal demonstrates how close reckless Drake could have come to execution himself...

Happy #FridayThe13th! Friday was a deeply unlucky day amongst sailors: so much so that it was considered taboo to leave port on a Friday for fear of cursing bad luck upon the crew... Even Thursday was getting too close: the most superstitious of sailors thought Sunday to be the best day to set sail...

This week's #FolkloreThursday theme is #frightening folklore to celebrate #Halloween and #Samhain! The Flying Dutchman is a legendary ghost ship, cursed to never make port and instead sail the seas forever… A portent of misfortune: if encountered, a ghostly crew will attempt to give out letters to deliver to shore, addressed to people long dead… According to myth, the captain was 17th-century Dutch captain Bernard Fokke: famous for the speed of his voyages from the Netherlands to Java - and suspected of being in league with the Devil! There have been many sightings - even King George V swore he’d glimpsed her...

#OnThisDay in 1588, the #SpanishArmada finally made it home to Santander, after being scattered by Francis Drake's ships (and fireships!), then forced to take a stormy, dangerous route around Ireland and Scotland.

New on the Tempus Fugitives webstore, a complete translation of Giovanni Lovino’s 1575 manuscript containing 65 full plays utilising a variety of weapons, including swords of both one and two handed varieties, off-hand accessories such as the dagger, cape, buckler, rotella and targa plus additional plays with polearms, fighting multiple opponents and combating a mounted opponent. In stock now.
The Two-Handed Greatsword (Spada a Due Mani) - Anonimo Bolognese (ca. 1500 - 1550) - 12th action The fourth in a series on the use of the Two-Handed Greatsword (Spada a due Mani), this is from the Manuscripts attributed to the ‘Anonimo Bolognese’ (ca. 1500 - 1550). Performed with a synthetic blade due to public access, this is the 11th action. -———————————————————————————- As many of you are probably aware, my moniker of ‘Wandering Swordsman’ used in these videos is based on the old European concept of a non guild affiliated instructor in swordsmanship being little better than a vagabond. This is particularly apt due to my lifestyle choice of living on a boat and travelling around the south of England, putting up posters and offering classes wherever I happen to stop. -———————————————————————————- Initiating action a.) Begin the action in cinghiara porta di ferro alta, with your false edge in contact with that of your opponent. b.) Cross your arms to bring your blade to the opposite side of your opponents weapon, catching the weak between your blade and crossguard. c.) Let go of your sword with your left hand, following the line of your blade to grasp your weapon at halfsword, allowing the blade to slope down and to the left. d.) Passing forwards and to the right, beat your opponents blade down and to the left with your crossguard. e.) Thrust your hilt forwards forcefully to strike your opponent in the face with the pommel. f.) End your opponent in the manner that seems appropriate, in this case we use a mandritto fendente (a downward angled cut, from right to left). Counter action a.) Await your opponents action in guardia porta di ferro alta (a guard position). b.) Do not react as your opponent crosses their arms. If you are keeping correct distance, then they cannot reach you without passing forwards with their right foot. c.) When your opponent throws your weapon aside and advances their right foot, before their foot has landed, throw yourself forwards ‘into’ your opponent, placing your left hand behind their elbow and pushing their right arm across their body. d.) As your left foot lands, the manuscript suggests either striking your opponent in the face with the pommel or cutting them with a fendente (a downward angled cut). The latter would only make sense if the opponent is stepping away. e.) End your opponent in a suitable manner. To demonstrate the second option from the manuscript (and because it is appropriate here) we are using a riverso fendente and compassing the right foot behind the left.

The Two-Handed Greatsword (Spada a Due Mani) - Anonimo Bolognese (ca. 1500 - 1550) - 11th action The third in a new series on the use of the Two-Handed Greatsword (Spada a due Mani), this is from the Manuscripts attributed to the ‘Anonimo Bolognese’ (ca. 1500 - 1550).

Begin the action in cinghiara porta di ferro alta, with your false edge in contact with that of your opponent. b.) Cross your arms to bring your blade to the opposite side of your opponents weapon, catching the weak between your blade and crossguard. c.) Throw the opponents weapon across your body with a sweeping action, passing obliquely to the right when their tip has moved safely out of presence. d.) Continue the sweeping motion into a circular cut, drawing your left foot behind your right as you cut a mandritto fendente to your opponents head. Counter action a.) Await your opponents action in the same guard position. b.) Do not react to your opponent as they cross their arms. Watch their feet peripherally - if you are keeping correct distance, then they should not be close enough to land a blow without advancing a foot. c.) Your opportunity presents itself when your opponent passes forwards, throwing your weapon aside and uncrossing to cut at you. d.) As your opponent releases your blade, cut a mezzo mandritto to their flank. e.) Immediately lift into guardia di intrare, catching the opponents cut on your cross while threatening the face.

The Two Handed Greatsword - Anonimo Bolognese (ca. 1500 - 1550) - 10th action The second in a series on the use of the Two-Handed Greatsword (Spada a due Mani), this is from the Manuscripts attributed to the ‘Anonimo Bolognese’ (ca. 1500 - 1550). Performed with a synthetic blade due to public access, this is the 10th action. -———————————————————————————- As many of you are probably aware, my moniker of ‘Wandering Swordsman’ used in these videos is based on the old European concept of a non guild affiliated instructor in swordsmanship being little better than a vagabond. This is particularly apt due to my lifestyle choice of living on a boat and travelling around the south of England, putting up posters and offering classes wherever I happen to stop. -———————————————————————————- 10th action a.) Start in porta di ferro alta, with your false edge against that of your opponent. b.) If your opponent thrusts along your blade, catch it on your Crossguard by lifting into guardia di testa. c.) Use your weapon to forcefully displace your opponents blade down and to the right. d.) Passing to the left, continue with a wheeling cut into a riverso fendente to the head and draw your right foot behind your left. Counter action a.) Starting in porta di ferro alta, pass forwards thrusting along your opponents blade, keeping your false edge in contact with theirs. b.) When your opponent catches and displaces your blade, use the force of that displacement to turn a mandritto to their head.

The Military Billhook (Welsh or Forest Bill) - George Silver (1599) - paradoxes, ch. 13 pt. 6&8 George Silver was a controversial character, even in his time, for his vehement opposition to the popular Italian systems being taught in London during the 16th century. Claiming to be revealing the older English methods of combat, his ‘Paradoxes of Defense for the True Handling of all Manner of Weapons’ does give an excellent description of the principles upon which this systems is grounded. The bill was the primary infantry weapon of Tudor armies, and described by George Silver as having “advantage against all manner of weapons whatsoever”. Ironically, Di Grassi, the author of an earlier book on Italian methodology popular in London - including the use of the bill - agreed with this notion in stating that the bill was the final and most superior form of polearm. -———————————————————————————- As many of you are probably aware, my moniker of ‘Wandering Swordsman’ used in these videos is based on the old European concept of a non guild affiliated instructor in swordsmanship being little better than a vagabond. This is particularly apt due to my lifestyle choice of living on a boat and travelling around the south of England, putting up posters and offering classes wherever I happen to stop. -———————————————————————————- Technique 1 a.) If the head of your opponents weapon lies lower than yours, place your fork over their haft, forcing it down. b.) Pass forwards, sliding the fork up the haft to your opponents hands. c.) Fall back into guard. Technique 2 a.) If the head of your opponents weapon lies higher than yours, place your fork under their haft and force their weapon aside. b.) Pass forwards, thrusting at your opponent one handed. c.) If your thrust misses, pull your opponent off balance as you lacerate them with the hook, stepping back into guard.
