Welcome to the online demesne of katherine kerr of the Hermitage, sometime Scots Borderer, wordsmith, mistress of the page both electronic and printed, and ever-hopeful reveller.
I am pleased to have a home for my notes, research and musings on these Current Middle Ages here at the edge of the Knowne Worlde. (And if that sentence makes you blink, you probably need to know more about the Society for Creative Anachronism, the international historical research and recreation group, of which I am a member.)
If you'd like to talk about any of the areas covered on this Website, with questions, comments or suggestions, lay on! (That is, email me.) The original navigation is creaking a bit under the load, but the site search function at left should get to you the right place if you use the right term....

It hasn't helped having had house quake repairs going on for the past six months, with my library boxed up and all my SCA stuff packed away....
I have a batch of stuff relating to various printed materials and family papers under way. It's been great to get some of it finished, though frustrating to have important books or materials stacked out of reach. Here's the latest lot:
Once I get the books unpacked, there'll be a period-style inventory of the collection, along with wardrobe warrants for my garb, a sketch of the Half-Circle Theatre stage a la the Castle of Perseverance, and more stuff. Keep watching!
