Sophomores Colton Wilson (left) and Sayek Shafiq (right) battle with broad swords during the Medieval and Renaissance Fair held Thursday morning at North Lamar High School as part of the honors requirements for Pre AP World History.

The students researched Medieval and Renaissance topics in European History from 500 to 1600 AD and could choose to work in groups or by themselves. Their teacher, Dennis Hodgkiss, required his students to write a report supported by a bibliography and develop a period costume.

The class also had to create a visual, play period music, and display period foods which they shared with students attending the event.
