Cool site!  Thanks for finding it!

Keep in mind that these are the equivalent of what we in the SCA call
"Achievement scrolls", not what we in the SCA erroneously refer to as
"grants of arms" and "patents of arms".

I've always said, as far back as I can remember, that "achievement
scrolls" were illuminated.  However, the illumination follows
specific guidelines of content and layout, which vary over time.
