Gerry Embleton discovered a passion for the medieval period after moving to Switzerland in the early 1980's. He founded his company Time Machine in 1988, designing, creating and clothing life-size model historical figures for museums in several countries. He has pursued his medieval research through a Swiss-based \u0022living history\u0022 group, whose high standards of authenticity have been endorsed by continental museums and heritage sites.
