For certain values of "East" I suppose. 1650 was the date that I was 
told in the part of Atenveldt that eventually became Ansteorra, back 
when I joined in AS 10. At the Known World Academy of the Rapier held 
in Atenveldt in AS 29, I was told by several people that 1650 was 
still the official cutoff date. (Granted, they were all rapier 
fighters with very late-period personas, so they may have been 
engaging in deliberate ignorance of the official cutoff date.)

How much more precise than "pre-17th century" do you want? That's 
what it says in the original Articles of Incorporation:
