This post serves as a boost and a brag. This year, the William Marshal Tournament at Pennsic War will be held on Monday of War Week, at the fort, from 5-7pm. This is correct on the Pennsic website, but NOT in the printed book. Please be advised of this error should you wish to compete … Continue reading “It’s 1183 and we’re barbarians!” The William Marshal Tournament @ Pennsic
I was debating if I should post this one, or not. *watches as the internet gets popcorn* First and foremost, I am not unaware of my attitude problems, so this is not any way to raise me up above the rest, but rather a reminder for myself, and everybody else, to remember some core values … Continue reading Remember the human: don’t be that guy at A&S classes and displays.

Feel free to ask me anything about Roman and Byzantine history, textiles, clothing, … Continue reading Ask me anything!
