Sir Troy of St. Paul, left, faces off against Sir Thomas of Strathcona as they demonstrate long and short sword technique with a buckle shield for Holy Family School Grade 4 students Wednesday. Edmontonians Troy Dolan and Thomas Yohemas of Knights of the Northern Realm, an organization devoted to recreating 14th century swordplay, explained the myriad of weapons used by knights as well as heraldry and culture surrounding them for the students who studied the medieval age as part of their language arts classes. A medieval feast wrapped up the day’s activities.
