Come and experience the full trajectory of the Spanish-Anglo War! The year is 1588. El Grande y Felicísima Armada has set sail from Spain for the English Channel. The coming battle at sea will determine supremacy on the Continent for the next century. Men and women prepare for war on both sides by eating and training.
