Old Is New at St. Augustine's School of the 16th Century
St. Augustine – If you've learned about centuries-old battle tactics by watching Hollywood interpretations of Robin Hood and William Wallace, don't bother bringing that knowledge to St. Augustine's School of the 16th Century . The seminar, offered a couple of times a year, instructs participants in how soldiers of the era dressed, fought, ate and navigated their way around the New World. And authenticity is the star of this show. “One of the first things we tell people is, 'OK, forget every movie you ever saw,'” says Chad Light of the Fountain of Youth , a professional re-enactor who portrays such critical Spanish explorers as Ponce de Leon and Pedro Menendez de Aviles.
