"Huchehault", what a strange name... comes from the old french "hucher" (= to shout) ; and "hault" is an old spelling of "haut" (= high) ; so "Huche-hault" is "the guy who shouts very loud"...

Do not be afraid however : as we say in Brittany, "he barks but he doesn't bite !"

Some friendly british re-enactors have even found another translation : they call me "captain Shout"...

Hey, how many home pages are in this website ? There should be only one !

Well, no, there's quite a lot of secondary home pages in here...

...because this site deals with differents historical periods, in at least three different languages : celtic Breton, French, and English, and I didn't want to put any of these languages above the others.

So there's a home page for every main subject (miscellaneous re-enactment, late medieval info, and late 17th C info), in each of the three languages. Don't worry for the headaches of the webmaster, I've got used to both... ;o)
