The earliest form of medieval lighting.
Sophie is the camp's lighting expert. When the sun goes down and there's still work to be done, food to be eaten or company to enjoy, Sophie will ensure that the camp still has plenty of light to do so.
Picking and preparing rushes to be used as lights is a lengthy and delicate process whereby the dried rushes are run through the leftover animal fat from the Cooks tent. Once dried again and lit the fat soaked rushes burn slowly, like a primitive candle, giving a light source for the dark evenings.
The rushes need replacing frequently as they don't burn for very long, so please feel free to lend Sophie a hand peeling and dipping her rushes - she'd welcome the help!
