Hello friends,

Since the topic of education in the SCA is current, I thought I would
share some of what I am learning in my Ancient and Medieval Western
Civilization class in college.

In the Middle Ages,

...chastity belts were extremly common and warn by all the wives when
their men were out on the Crusades.

...canibilism was rampant all over Europe during the Crusades.

...people were so filthy, there were actually sewn into their clothes
and would wear them until they fell off.

And to throw a Renaissance bit in:  When Elizibeth I died, there was an
inch thick layer of caked on make-up on her face.

Anybody care to comment?
