ABOUT THE EMHS
"Formed in the spirit of dynamic growth, social
justice and intellectual pursuits."
Essex Medieval Heritage Society is a non-profit organization in the Windsor Ontario area whose members are dedicated to promote an awareness of and appreciation for our medieval heritage.
EMHS conducts living history presentations on a small scale for schools and, on a large scale for outdoors-public venues. Our Members portray medieval lifestyles dating from late 600 AD to 1600 CE. Our displays include clothing, weapons, armor, fiber arts, calligraphy, illumination, household goods and much more. The success of our presentations depends heavily on the volunteer work of our members.
Many ancient crafts cannot be learned quickly and require a substantial personal investment of time, and effort. All fighting is regulated and managed safely by marshalls in accordance to the rules of the Society of Creative Anachronism. (http://www.midrealm.org/starleafgate/index.html)
If you are a educator (especially grade 4) and want us for a demonstration you can email us at or if you are someone who secretly wanted to be a knight or a lady, you can contact us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by finding us on facebook, or by coming out to a meeting night.
We meet Sundays from 6:30-10 pm. Please find us on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/groups/starleafgate/ for current news and meetings.
The Essex Medieval Heritage Society tries to bring the medieval way to life in modern times. From clothing to utensils we strive to educate in a fun environment.
TRADITION OF DIVERSITY
Spanning from the 9th Century to the 16th Century and the entire Known World, medieval times are very diverse and so are our members.
The Essex Medieval Heritage Society has been in Windsor since 1986. Originally started at the University of Windsor, The EMHS has grown and changed into the wonderful group of volunteers we have today. To learn more about our history we would like to welcome you to come out and talk to us in person.
From 9th Century Vikings to 16th Century Aristocrats and everything in between, come out and learn about your favourite part of History. Chivalry still abounds with us.
