At least in my barony, I've seen a dramatic change in the way
children have been viewed. Ten+ years ago much of the barony was
divided into the folks with children and the partyers. The schedules
didn't mesh well. The partyers wanted to stay up late and party,
while the parent group wanted to go to bed early and wake up early,
much to the dismay of the late-sleeping/hung-over partyers. That
division has softened quite a lot as many of the partyers got older
and had children.
Many events have organized children's activities, although it has
gotten harder to find people willing to lead them with the two
unrelated adults at all times, and now the background check rules.
For more on children in the SCA and various activities for them, you
might want to browse through the CHILDREN section in the Florilegium.
A few of the files there include:

> -From the cookbook _Cornish Recipes Ancient and Modern_
I was unaware of any cookbooks which had actual Cornish medieval (or
older) recipes. I'd like to hear more about this book. Does it have
actual recipes or are they simply someone's guesses about what might
have been done? Unfortunately, many people, including some cookbook
authors often fail to distinguish between "traditional" and
"medieval". Tomatoes are "traditional" in some Italian cooking, but
certainly not medieval for instance. The same is apparently true of
the Cornish Pastry consisting of several different foods in different
areas of the same hand pie. This appears to be an 18th or 19th
century invention. :-(
