Definately Valdemar ( I remember some of the labourers from ages back) but the working bods don´t fit alongside the richer looking ones.
The lute Player..what´s he doing among them..a Musical accompaniment to the workers? There was also a Jester but he was broken off his base at the ankles. What was his role? Jokes and tomfoolery to keep the workers Spirits up ? Attempts to repair him was like trying to Balance jelly on a wet balloon so he ended up in the scrap metal pile.
16 bods (17 if the footloose Jester is included) which seems a large number of bods for a single set. I haven´t been able to track down a single one of them to confirm which set they belong to so I cannot say.

As far as I know, gaffer meant and on Building sites, was a term used for Foreman. In German it means someone who rubbernecks...someone who stands about and watches..so quite Fitting to some foremen, sorry, Gaffers, I worked for.
