When two worlds meet- Kinsale 1518

 I read about the celebrations here first of all here  and found it all fascinating. Basically its about 15th century Holy Roman Empire folk landing in Ireland and recording in a written account what they saw and did. It also relates to a Durer picture I particularly like and was conversing with Man of Tin about on the inter web. Do pop by the website above, it is interesting. Anyway the book of the event in 1518 arrived this week

A most interesting read and kindly signed by the author for me. By the way Anteluvian Miniatures make a splendid pack of four figures based on the Durer illustration , sadly currently out of stock. When they are restocked I will get a pack for my Irish armies. Just couldn’t resist.
