Most come
into the SCA for the lets pretend and maybe learn a little history in the
processes. But when a new person given the impression that SCA is a
hardcore, must be documented, kit must be accurate kind o'group, there is
more of a chance of them leaving. A rare few join wearing the extreme
research and documentation genes. :)

<<You know, the Age Of Chivalry, where it came from and where it went.>>

De: I have heard the "Age of Chivalry" debated many o' time. Were the Middle
Ages that chivalric or are we recreating an 1800s notion? < < < <

QUERY 1:  How does one actual distinguish whether one is learning factual or
ficticious/wishful without actual book-reading, documented research?

QUERY 2:  Does the "Age of Chivalry" refer to behaviors or a general
timeframe in Western European (basically) history?  Just getting our
difinitions stright aw we go.  I want to be sure I am looking at the same
thing you are.
