• Pirates and knights

    Hanse-inspired fun

Event description

This living history tour will start at True’s Yard and end outside Stories of Lynn.

Learn about how merchants banded together to protect themselves from pirates.  This behaviour formed the very origins of the Hanseatic League.  By pooling their resources the merchants were able to hire Teutonic Knights to protect them and to go fight the pirates on their own ground.

Meet the guides at True’s Yard, the pirates and the knights will be at the Hanse House.

There will also be archery at St Nicholas Chapel and falconry at the Hanse House.
