ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Reading about history is one thing, but living it is another.

Some Deerfield Windsor students experienced life in medieval times Friday.

Wearing period costumes, 6th graders enjoyed a medieval feast at Covenant Presbyterian Church.

By candle light, they feasted on cheese, fruit and turkey legs.

They also watched jousting and other medieval activities.

The students recently finished reading Arthurian legend and so the school decided to bring the stories to life.

"We do tie it in with the fact that we are knights, and that our behavior should parallel that of the knights of chivalry," said Peggy Kinsaul, a 6th grade literature teacher.

Re-enactors from Americus were brought in to take the blows delivered by the students. Kinsaul praised the creativity of the students, saying that they created the crests on their shields on their own.
