EPHRATA — The clash and clang of medieval battle drew so many warriors that you practically had to beat ’em off with a stick.
No, really. Five feet away from spectators, a field full of heavily armored knights and soldiers literally beat the living daylights out of each other with sticks, swords, axes, battle clubs and some kind of jousting pole. Then came the rain of snub-nosed arrows — thwwt! thwwt! — not to mention crossbows forcefully firing tennis balls.
