This project examines how to plan fieldwork in historical reenactments with a specific focus on the costumed participants and how they express themselves to recipients. This is done with an overall theoretical analysis that utilizes the television series Coal House and the observations and experiences derived from other scientific texts. It is concluded that reenactments structure a whole that allows the costumed participants to understand the reconstructed historical period, the usage of all senses and free interaction within the limits of the reenactment. However, there is also a compromise in these wholes between past and present when it comes to the differences in historical contexts. The fieldworker is advised to begin with distanced observations and to end with direct participation in a reenactment. The reason for this is that costumed participants’ expressions in reenactments rely on individual decisions as well as general guidelines made by the administration. General guidelines is to be observed at a distance while individual decisions requires closer examination by participation.
