Nuremberg Contingent 1499


Nuremberg Contingent 1499

We portray landsknechts and camp followers from Nuremberg who took part in the Swiss/Swabian war of 1499. The contingent was commanded by Wilibald Pirckheimer who later wrote an account of his experiences in his book "Der Schweizerkrieg". Pirckheimer was a true renaissance man and best friend of Albrecht Durer. Our group attempts to recreate the clothing and material culture that appears in the work of Durer and his south German contemporaries.
