Guild

A group of merchants engaged in civic official roles in the management of a Medieval town. They control finances, entry to the guild, qualified apprentices and so on. Each trade has a guild or company - in major Medieval towns such as Newcastle each was responsible for putting on a different passion (Christian Easter-time) play annually.
