A brief history of funfair travel

The fairs in that country have a long and ancient history deeply rooted in tradition.

The word fair originates from the Latin "Holidays", meaning holiday, and once the Romans are attributed to the introduction of trade fairs. It is now generally accepted that they are the origin of pagan customs of peoples who first settled this land; their seasonal gatherings held for the purpose of trade and ceremony, contained important elements of the fair.

Romans have worked hard to promote fairs by promoting trade and communications across the country. During the centuries after the departure of the Romans, many fairs and other festivals were included in the calendar of the growing Christian Church. The artisans assigned by the sovereign had a real legal status and an increasing importance in the economic life of the nation.

Traders and merchants from Europe, the Middle East and beyond were attracted to large medieval middle-class fairs that brought with them the wealth of goods.

A large number of these fairs, the smallest of 4860, was leased between 1200 and 1400, attracting not only traders but also entertainers: jugglers, musicians and drums – ancestors of today's spectacles. 19659002] Black Death 1348-49 brought a new kind of fair. In order to halt the rise in wages caused by the shortage of workers, Edward III introduced the Workers' Statute. This made all able men to show up for the rent on a given payroll. These collective or leased fairs were held mainly around Michealmas, the end of the agricultural year. Until the early eighteenth century trade aspects of charter fairs decreased, and most fairs almost exclusively served parties, acrobats, illusions and theater companies all engaged in trade at the fairgrounds. About this time the first fairy dances began to appear, a little roughly made of wood and stimulated by the gang of boys. In 1868, Frederick Savage, a successful agricultural engineer from Kings Lynn, invented a driveway ride. His invention, the steam engine set in the center of the ride was transforming the trade fair industry. Released by muscle power limitations, the ride could be larger, opaque and larger ornamented. The artist's novelty request coincides with the genius of Savage and other engineers.

In the light of the steam revolution, there has been an incredible variety of new designs and driving. These rides have been the forerunners of today's amazing driving, during the era of innovation such as electric lighting, electric motors, hydraulics, etc. The permits are being developed into incredible devices that are being seen today at any local fair.
