at the time

< Previous | Next >
Hi all,
Can I use "at the time" in this context?:

During the high season you can watch live performaces by costumed actors to discover how battles were fought at the time. It is a reconstrution of a battle.

Hope you understand what I mean.
Thank you for your help.

    Yes, the phrase can be used that way. The second sentence needs some editing. The word “it” refers to a single item – i.e. it is a car, it is a garden, it is a dance. Since there are many performances, the “it” should be replaced with “they” or the sentence should be rewritten.

    Re-write: During the high season you can watch live performances, by costumed actors, to see how battles were fought at the time. The performances are reconstructions of battles fought during that time.
