A Blending of the Past and Present
Here is the list of my featured SCA Rialto files for this month. I have
files for all interests. If none of the files below interest you, ask for
a copy of my complete file list. If you would like a copy of any of these
files, just let me know. I can print them on paper for you, copy them
to a computer disk or send them by email.
Those of you who have World-Wide-Web (WWW) access can get these files at:

or two before the newest files are online.

Wars. The class will be on Thursday and Friday at 1:00 pm. Those of you
interested in learning this medieval craft, might want to look at this file:
casting-msg Casting pewter and other metals.
PS: I am thinking about renaming this file collection from the SCA
Rialto Files to something else since it includes more than the Rialto
and it is at best only a selective archive of the Rialto.
In addition to messages from the the Rialto (rec.org.sca) this set of
files includes messages from the Ansteorra and Bryn Gwlad mail lists,
the old fidonet Medieval echo, other maillists and newsgroups as well
as articles submitted by their authors. Does anyone have any ideas? Is
there a medieval word for a collection of manuscripts, encyclopedia or
