Next week Bodiam will be at battle. Watch as local supporters of Sir Edward arrive, set up camp, undergo training in archery and other military drills. Alongside this we'll have a medieval blacksmith working away to construct a brigandine which will be put to the test against the arrow on Bank Holiday Monday. Will the armour be pierced? Come along and find out.
