For the last ten years, we at Actions Past have invested the overwhelming amount of our time, energy and creative effort in supporting the School of the Renaissance Soldier and its annual field event “Actions of the Lowe Countries”, the ALC. This website was, in fact, originally created explicitly to support it. The ALC has been a very successful event, loved by many. As historical reenactors, however, we have always had interests well beyond 16th century military topics, some of which have been represented on this site. These are interests we are longing to explore!
In 2014 we held the tenth annual Actions of the Lowe Countries. At that time we announced to our dedicated participants, that it would be the “last regularly scheduled ALC.” We were not then, nor are we now, prepared to say that 2014 was, in fact, the final ALC. We have lived and breathed it for so long that it will always be a part of us. We can say for certainty, however, that we have, for now, shifted our focus to other projects. The updated contents presented in these pages in the coming weeks will highlight these.
