Weekend Warriors

23’ - ITV West

Sometimes you feel a presence that someone else has walked that path...

Steve, Eryl & Bill are members of the Silures Tribe, an Iron Age historical re-enactment group who spend their weekends living as Celts.

From spear practise on the village green, to the importance of wearing authentic first century underwear, 'Weekend Warriors' provides a fascinating and humorous insight into our need to escape the day to day pressures of the 21st century.
