Medieval Market reunites students with past

Hawkers arrive, assemble their wares and their calls echo through the early morning air. Hammers pound nails into wood as food and gaming booths are erected. The annual junior high medieval market will come alive April 1 in the Ground Zero courtyard.

In its 11th year, the Medieval Market is meant as a research project for students to explore life in the Middle Ages–a kind of living history experience.

Terri Edmunds, 7th grade humanities teacher, anticipates past junior high members to visit the market and relive their past.

“My students have been working on this project for a month now,”” Lady Edmunds said. “”They are learning what life was like the 1100s this year and I think they have a good chance to remember it because they are acting it out.””

Many former students are also participaing in the event as drama class will present a skit during the day.

“”I’m excited because the high school students add a whole new dimension,”” Lady Edmunds said. “I’ve always wanted the high school to come and visit. The mystery players are going to remind us of God and His word.”

Drama teacher, Tom McEntee, is eager for drama students to perform in the market this year.

“I’m excited because the students are doing it on their own,” McEntee said. “They are working on their own original piece and will perform it during the day. They know how to make kids laugh.”

The Medieval Market will take place on campus starting at 8 A.M.
