Greetings to the Gentles of the Known World,
Here is a copy of my Florilegium article for March.
If you have written any SCA-oriented articles for your local
newsletter, please consider sending them for me for the Florilegium.
You've already put in effort researching and writing such an article,
and having it in the Florilegium is one way of helping the Known
World as well. Often a class handout or a piece of A&S documentation
can also work well. I would especially love to get any formal papers
entered in A&S contests. The copyright remains with the author and I
accept updates and revisions as you learn more.
If any of you are going to be at Gulf Wars in this next week, please
consider dropping by and visiting. I will be camping with the Barony
of Bryn Gwlad which will be camping across the road from the
Ansteorra gate. I will also be teaching my class about the
Florilegium twice and my hands-on pewter casting class. The first
will be in the class area and the second in the Artisan's Row area.
A Blending of the Past and Present
Over the past seventeen years in an ongoing effort, I have been
collecting bits of useful information from various newsgroups, mail
lists and articles submitted to me by their authors. In order to make
this information available to others, I have placed this information
in a collection of files I call Stefan's Florilegium.
The Florilegium is on the web at: http://www.florilegium.org
I am always interested in new articles. If you have written an
article that would be of interest to others in the SCA, please send
it to me for possible inclusion in the Florilegium. A&S documentation
and class handouts will also often work out well.
I am also interested in volunteers who might be interested in helping
me maintain the Florilegium. Everything from collecting materials,
editing and web work is needed. Again, please contact me for more
