Arts and Sciences
We learn about history by recreating it. We study period techniques and apply them in a modern world (considering things such as cost and availability of materials, safety, and such). Accuracy is important and we source a range of documentary evidence, including manuscripts, archeological finds, paintings and sculptures, as well as stories told by the people that lived in those times.
Most classes are conducted fairly informally, and evolve from one or two members researching a new technique, area of interest, or teaching a class that has been taught to them. We cover everything from making garb (clothing), leatherwork, studying games and music, learning medieval dance, fletching, making armour and weaponcraft, calligraphy, food preparation, heraldic design and display, plus a host of other interesting topics.
