A method often applied in psychology, content analysis converts words or symbols into statistical data, hunting for patterns such as word associations and word frequencies.
These patterns, if statistically significant, can then speak to underlying assumptions or approaches revealed in text. So much for my methods; my materials for this project were as varied, if not more. Though limited by time and geography, I endeavoured to study as many different aspects or types of reenactment as possible in order to understand the term in its broadest sense. For a list of events I attended, please see Table 1. Many of these events involved more than one reenactment group or even more than one time period.
Fig 1. Dates, places, organisers, and goals of reenactments I attended as an observer. The trouble with discussing reenactment as a unified entity is that it is anything but.
Though there are lobbying groups like NARES and bodies governing individual groups like the Wars of the Roses Federation, there are also many independent reenactment groups. Some focus on warfare, some on living history; some encourage first person presentation, some abhor it; some are active with other groups in their area, while some keep to themselves. However, it is very important to note that just as for academics, reputation is a strong limiting factor for reenactment groups.
Many events, particularly large ones, are invite-only and heritage managers make it clear that they invite only the groups they know to be safe, friendly, and reliably authentic.

The time period was fifteenth century and the focus lay equally on combat and living history sewing, cobbling, reliquary, et cetera. For a list of events I attended as part of the Nevilles, please see Table 2.

Fig 2. The initial questions of the survey dealt with basic demographic information. Additionally the ages of those surveyed focused heavily on the years between twenty and sixty, with only 5. Most reported was the range Those who were unemployed and retired came in at 4. Most interestingly, respondents showed a higher level of experience than expected See Table 3. Table 3: A summary of demographic data collected in the first set of questions on the survey.
Variety evident in the demographic continued to be a trend in the results. When asked what resources they would recommend to an incoming reenactor, those surveyed were likely to submit mental qualities as well as true research references See Table 5. Table 4. Word occurrences in written definitions of reenactment, arranged from most to least frequent.
