Goldsworth Valley Pond

Description

A hands-on workshop lead by Darrell Markewitz will allow attendees to learn the process of casting pewter tokens in a soapstone mould as was done in the Middle Ages. Many literary scholars see history in isolation from the artifacts and processes of the period under study. Adding a demonstration of techniques and technologies that have been understood or reproduced using Experimental Archaeological methods allows attendees of ICMS to enhance their appreciation of the underlying artifacts and technologies. This experiential archaeology session will allow attendees the opportunity to cast a pilgrim's badge they can take away for a cost of $5.
