I knew that parvenu grey rusty metal wouldn't last and people would return to the true bronze.

Some examples of question we've been asked in the past years:

- is this fire real?

- is the pork on the fire real?

- are you Vikings/Romans/Indians?

- do you actually come from "there"?

- what are you doing in my backyard? (ok, this was because of a misunderstanding between the major who booked us and the old lady owning the ground)

- did Celts use to have sex?

To the last one i answered "No; that's what led them to extinction".

Edwin, the spearheads are about 8-9cm long, with half of that being blade. The blades are around 2.5cm wide and diamond shaped. Spear shafts around 14mm thick.. Pictures included in the new blog: http://www.dumnonika.com/dumnonika-blog

Thanks, very close to some javelins I had made by a local blacksmith modelled on what was called a Roman Travelling Spear by a blacksmith at a show.

Unfortunately Dumnonika have now folded, it was pretty much getting down to me and my aged parents, and it was all getting a bit much for them.

I'm hoping to continue as a one man show called Dumnonios (The Dumnonian), but I don't know how busy/active I'll be. Getting a lot of kicks out of doing a local LARP called Dumnonni Chronicles set in Celtic/Norse mythology.

I am sorry to hear that. It is always sad when groups fall apart. But new ones might also form. So don't give up hope.
