1381: The Peel Affinity builds a portrait of a world long lost, illustrated in colour throughout, and filled with carefully researched and reconstructed clothing, tools, armour, furnishings and other items, all based closely on surviving artefacts, manuscript illustrations and paintings. The text draws extensive details from historical accounts, records, chronicles and literature, as well as modern historical and archaeological research. All this potentially dull and dusty detail is brought to vibrant life with a narrative that follows an English knight and family, his servants, officials and tenants, associates and soldiers through a year in their lives.

The Peel Affinity represents the culmination of years of work by La Belle Compagnie. Founded in 1992, La Belle is a group of independent scholars and history enthusiasts committed to the presentation of history through the medium of 'living history.' La Belle Compagnie has worked with schools, civic groups, museums and other organisations to bring a bit of the past to life and has won numerous awards for its presentations.
