Greetings to the Gentles of the SCA-Cooks list,

Here is a copy of my Florilegium article for March, detailing what is  
new in the Florilegium this month.

I am always looking for new and interesting material to showcase in  
the Florilegium. This could anything having to do with the Middle  
Ages or the recreation of those times, from a short article you wrote  
for a local newsletter to a Master's Thesis. Yes, there is at least  
one in the Florilegium. Class handouts or Arts & Sciences  
documentation can also work well, if they can stand alone without the  
class or the object that they are supporting.  Since I take updates  
at any time, either of these could be replaced with a more formal  
article later. In the meantime, others will find them useful and you  
may get suggestions and additional documentation to improve your work.

If any of you are going to be at Gulf Wars 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 sixteen 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 series 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. Contact me for  
more details.

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  

For those who would like to help support the Florilegium project in  
another way, I have added a PayPal donation button on the top page of  
the site. Any donations, while not tax deductible, do help pay the  
overhead costs of keeping the site running.
