In response to my question:
>Just out of curiousity, have you ever *seen* anyone receive an award for
>authenticity? How about research? Certainly I've seen them given out
>for *applying* any reasearch they did, say in prettily embroidered costuming
>(and I'm not criticizing that at all), but when was the last time a
>research document *won* anything at an A&S competition? A Sable Sphincter
>was given out for *Authentic* clothing?...
<moondrgn at bga.com (Chris and Elisabeth Zakes)>
>Mistress Adelicia Gilwell has received a Sable Thistle for Research. I don't
>know of any others, but the original Lion of Ansteorra, Orm Skjolbidig,
>earned it by being the most authentic Norseman I had (and still have) ever seen.
>Well I've seen Sable Thistles given out for "research"....

>Lord Dmitri Sviatoslav Varulovich Polynov from the Shire of Tempio has
>received a Sable Thistle for "Name Research". I know there are several
>others who have received Thistles for other types of Research.
<"Lisa A. May" <xylm1 at ttacs1.ttu.edu>>
>I also know of at least one Laurel and one Iris in Ansteorra given for
>research. These gentles are the ones the other Laurels often call for
Clearly, I am mistaken. My apologies. Such awards given out far more
commonly than I had noticed, suggesting my hypothesis that there is, in fact,
a bit of a double standard regarding research and "authenticity" (at least
in *this* kingdom, may be based on a fallacious premise.
