Quantcast
When Bold Knights Lanced and Unicorns Pranced

This documentary features children who participated in educational workshops held at The Cloisters in the summer of 1974, which led to a daylong medieval festival. It includes brief appearances by Nancy Kueffner (head of the Education Department at The Cloisters) and Helmut Nickel (Curator, Arms and Armor). Armourer Robert Carroll also appears. The stars, however, are the children participating in these activities.

May 2013 through May 2014 marks the seventy-fifth anniversary of The Cloisters.
