Honestly, it’s 2012, not 1066 and this stuff is still going on.
During the “Medievales Europeennes de Bitche”, one of France’s largest festivals of medieval culture, attended by more than 11,000 people some knights armed with swords and an axe attacked one of the organisers and made off with 20,000 euros (£15,600).
The raid happened in the early hours as organisers were counting revenues from the festival in Bitche, near the German border.
Police have opened an investigation and interviewed several witnesses. They have learned that there were three or four individuals, masked and wearing medieval attire.
If we’re lucky, they might be more Robin Hood than Dick Turpin.
