Coronet was amazing! Even just glimpsed through other folks’ posted pix, and the live-streams, it was amazing. One of the coolest things that happened was seeing a young man who has grown up in the SCA getting his AoA. Lots of folks are posting pictures. Go track ’em down! Lotsa fun! (not enough room here….)
Still, the only workshop that’s on-going is Sewing, although it’s not well-attended. It’s mostly that it’s a pick-up kind of thing and needs no prep or extra time that Loren and Anja can do it. Project Day is open for in-person meet-ups as well as in the Virtual Realm. Potluck this month will be Virtual and Real-World! Masks are still requested. When will the rest of these open up in person? We’ll keep right on with the virtual ones side-by-side with the actual.

What Was Life In Dark Age Britain Really Like? | King Arthur’s Britain | Complete Series | Chronicle – Chronicle – Medieval History Documentaries – Francis Pryor argues that Britain’s early history was a vibrant period, when the island thrived under foreign influences from as far afield as the Middle East without losing any cultural identity. In this full series, he re-imagines the Dark Ages in Britain as a period of expansion, artistic achievement and vibrance.
The Excruciating Death of Thomas Cranmer & The Tale of the Oxford Martyrs – The Tudor Travel Guide – Today we travel to the heart of the ancient city of Oxford to hear the tragic tale of the Oxford Martyrs,: Thomas Cranmer, Nicolas Ridley and Hugh Latimer, all of whom were burnt at the stake in the mid-1550s on account of their evangelical faith. If you are thinking of visiting the city, you will also see the most notable sites associated with their story.
Early Week – Other than some work on the garden, mostly we were sorting out dishes and putting things away.
Cookery – A lot of the leftover greens went into a soup/stew early in the week. We were working on leftovers the whole week. On Thursday we got some veg that Anja decided to pickle, since they were so pretty: rainbow carrots, a huge turnip and some parsnips. but that meant another batch of pickling broth, too.
Lots more added to the Culinary Symposium list! – https://www.youtube.com/c/WestKingdomSCA/videos
Sewing – Working on another bookmark, started it, discovered that the pattern didn’t work, picked another and mostly finished it by Friday….just a few motifs to go.
Sundials, etc. –
Herb Bunch – Lily of the Valley and Peonies went into pots on Tuesday. A bunch of seeds went in, too: peas in one of the railing planters, a few sunflowers, a pot of alexanders, and another pot of nettles. Anja started working on tags for the sale plants, as well as what’s in the garden.
Project Day – Anja processed pictures and nabbed links for this week. After that was done the embroidery came out. Loren filled water bottles for the indoor plants and Anja watered. Pirate Marzipan got made in quantity.
Feast Planning – Another page got updated, Birka chicken this time. I think we’re pretty close to having a full-on feast recipe for this one.
Late medieval England – “The Agincourt Carol” – Eric Boulanger – Also known as “Agincourt Song”, “Agincourt Hymn”, “Deo gratias Anglia” or “England give thanks to God for victory!”, The Agincourt Carol relates and celebrates the battle of Agincourt in 1415, in which King Henry V of England defeated King Charles VI of France.

Deo gratias, Anglia, redde pro victoria!
Owre kynge went forth to Normandy,
With grace and myght of chyvalry;
Ther God for hym wrought mervelusly,
Wherfore Englonde may calle and cry
He sette a sege, forsothe to say,
To Harflu towne with ryal aray;
That toune he wan and made afray
That Fraunce shal rewe tyl domesday.
Then went hym forth, owre king comely,
In Agincourt feld he faught manly;
Thorw grace of God most marvelusly,
He had both feld and victory.
Ther lordys, erles and barone
Were slayne and taken and that full soon,
And summe were broght into Lundone
With joye and blisse and gret renone;
Almighty God he keep owre kynge,
His peple, and his well-wyllynge ending;
Then may we call and savely syng:
