The Authenticity Team

Central to all that Regia Anglorum do is authenticity. To ensure that strict standards are kept, that evidence is challenged and regulations updated, Regia Anglorum has a team of knowledgeable people to inform the membership of the latest interpretations of what can be very scant evidence. They are chaired by, and report to, the Authenticity Officer, who has to balance the weight of evidence against what is workable within the society, as well as taking into account the desires of a membership for whom this is, afterall, still a hobby.

The Military Training Team

Use of steal weapons in brutal hand-to-hand combat does not tend to feature in 21st-century daily life, so to mould the modern man into an effective warrior requires the tuition of the most experienced fighters that Regia has to offer. This team teaches the whole membership how to use the spear, the axe, the sword and the mace in a safe, impressive and effective manner. They are also entrusted with a small ink stamp, whereby an individual's progress is marked in their own book. Each training deputy will have their own stamp – see if you can collect them all...

The Living History Team

The Living History Exhibit (LHE) forms half of most shows. It is a continuous display of life and crafts from the chosen dateline. It is where the military wargear is shown off. It is where questions can be asked by the public and fellow reenactors. More than that, the larger displays plunge the spectator into a pseudo-Mediaeval world, with the sights, smells, sounds and impression of a Dark Age encampment or village. These fantastical dioramas and melting pots of historical knowledge are the result of a hard-working team, who together with the LHE coordinator, will organise and manage the setup of all such displays.

The Master-at-Arms

Few areas in Regia Anglorum have the ability to trump authenticity, but safety on the field is one such area. This is the preserve of the Master-at-Arms (or MaA), who has the final say on what war gear can and cannot be used on a Regia Anglorum battlefield. Before every training session and every battle, the MaA or one of his deputies will quality-check every weapon and every shield; watch out for potential damage to wargear which could pose a safety issue, and keep an eye on wargear authenticity for public facing shows.

The Missiles Team

The archery range, and missile combat on the battlefield, is a unique area and the preserve of the Missiles team. They train, oversee and propagate ranged combat on the field, as well as target practice off the field. They also assist in the training of rank-and-file warriors to receive arrows and javelins safely.

The First-Aid Team

The silent guardians of reenactors are the first-aid team, who care for those who might encounter injury at events. Every national event is allocated a first-aid point-of-contact who oversees any mishaps which might occur, it will usually be one of the below.

The Warlords

Becoming a "warlord" is the society's way of recognising commitment to the hobby on the battlefield. It isn't about prowess on the field, although many of the below are amongst the most formidable foes you could encounter, rather it is about the whole – attitude on the field, honesty, good standard of kit etc. Warlords are awarded a white silk scarf, often worn around the neck.
