It's a real period sport - how much is known about it you'd have to
ask Dafydd, or another games scholar. When I was doing some reseach
of my own last year I cited him a medieval engraving on a ewer showing
two cambok players - it was obvious. At this point I can't remember
exactly where it was, or if I own the book or not. I did send it to
him. (A ewer is a pitcher or liquids container).

Dafydd's in high drive in the middle of his dissertation now so I'm 
sure he'd just love to look for it. Me, I'm in the middle of my usual
Fibrofog (decreased mental acuity from Fibromyalgia).

Tag. You're it. :)
