Verdala Castle becomes a battleground

Video - Mark Zammit Cordina

Verdala Castle gardens were a battleground today - with re-enactors taking part in warfare from medieval times right through to Roman times, the Napoleonic wars and the Second World War.

Hundreds of people watched as the re-enactors in armour battled with swords, bows and arrows. Others in period uniform used ancient cannon and muskets and yet another section used WWII rifles.

The event also recreated living conditions in the encampments and included skill at arms displays and parades.

The event was organised by the Historic Re-enactment Group, which raised funds for L-Istrina.
