Most everyone knows that the East Kingdom in the SCA includes parts of two modern countries, the United States of America and Canada, but how much do you really know about the Huge East Kingdom Crown Principality to the North East?
As was reported recently. Tir Mara will be hosting Their Majesties in Ruantallan on the 30th of this month.
To honour all those visiting Tir Mara and in respect due to the Crowns of the East Kingdom, Lady Juliana and her staff will endeavor to provide all with a hearty day board in the Norse and Anglo Saxon styles. Feast in the later day is to honour Herne the Hunter, as only Ruantallan can do, and show Their Majesties how “Ruantallanites” celebrate. Continue reading

Hark! Is that yon horn I hear, heralding in the hunters to come and celebrate the season? (Why yes……… yes it is!)
Whom are they escorting on the road to Ruantallan? I see wagons and horses, men, women and children… a veritable parade of……. Wait? Could it be? Their Majesties are enroute to visit our fair lands?
Come spend a day of rejoicing in the plenty that the fall harvest has given us, welcome back the warriors from their long journey to lands foreign and near in defense of our homes and happiness. Witness the majesty of… Their Majesties!
The Crown Principality of Tir Mara’s weekend was one of Thanksgiving, and a Gentleman and Gentlewoman’s Meal with a pie of that Turkish fowl led Lady Mergriet Van Wijenhorst to victory as Princess’ A&S Champion at the Tir Mara Rattan and A&S Championships Event held in the Shire of Lyndhaven on Saturday. The competition, while small by kingdom standards, was well represented by the people of Tir Mara and high in standard of entry. Katherine Murray was cloaked with the regalia of Prince’s Champion of A&S by His Majesty Kenric, both He and Her Majesty proudly bedecked in the blue & white stars of Their Crown Principality. Katherine was recognized for her work in dyes and the garments made from her explorations. His Majesty also recognized Lord Guthfrith Yrlingson for his Anglo-Saxon Pin and Brooch with an Honourable Mention. Lady Greta and Lady Cellach don were both present to be applauded and thanked for their year of service as out-going A&S Champions. Continue reading
Excerpts From a Report by Mistress Brita Mairi Svensdottir
On a fine October day, the Endewearde Hunt for the Unicorn took place. Many activities were enjoyed: A&S classes seemed to be enthusiastically attended, the hurley players had a great time, the children conducted a successful cattle raid, the thrown weapons range was always busy, and many people participated in archery. There were 18 Endeweardian archers who participated in the baronial challenge, which was finally won by Lord Eoin an Doire. Baroness Aneleda’s Enchanted Ground was attended by about ten people who shared poems, songs, music and stories and Aneleda gave brooches made by her to all those who came. New people added their voices to singing around the fire on Saturday night, and Papa’s Bar at the End of the World did a roaring business. The Brewers’ Round Table was attended by brewers of all degrees of experience and Sylvia thought it went very well.

Artifacts of a Life, a new type of Arts & Sciences event that is jointly sponsored by The Barony Beyond the Mountain and the Barony of Carolingia, is coming on September 21!
The event centers around display of artifacts that could have been left behind by a plausible historic persona — it does not have to be your SCA persona. The goal is to be able to look at these as a whole for what they reveal about the material culture of that persona’s time, place, and social context.
Because this is a new way of looking at Arts & Sciences, there is an additional page of information to help both judges and entrants prepare, that can be found here: http://sca-artifactschallenge.blogspot.com/p/prospective-judges-and-entrants.html
