As I continue to insist, there’s nothing more medieval than a good anachronism. And this is a good one:
This comes from Ian Muirhead’s Flikr set of the 940th anniversary of 1066 re-enactment of the Battle of Hastings. Note the Curry stand towards the top left of the photo. If you’re interested in seeing more, here’s a set by Kev Sutton. Also, Ian Muirhead’s sets of the archers (where this one’s from) and cavalry.
Of course, as a serious medieval scholar, I must point out that the battle of Hastings looked nothing like the above picture, but rather looked exactly like this:
So, if the re-enactors had wanted to be authentic, they would have put a giant pelican-bird thing where the curry stand was. If someone can get me the email of the organizers, I’ll bring this omission to their attention.
