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:

The staff of the event are still accepting volunteers for judging, previous experience is not necessarily required. The organizers are encouraging  entrants and judges to be able to talk to each other face to face and hope the more judges that are available will allow a better quality of feedback for the entrants.

Please let event organizers  know in advance if you plan to enter just so they can make sure to have the right space and layout available for you. It is not a requirement, but it is helpful to planning.

And of course, they can always use more volunteers, especially for gate and registration of entrants.

Those wishing to enter or volunteer can contact Baron Jehan at
