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 AS50 Challenge is going to take up a lot of my time and run until 2015! Take a look and find out why:
January 2013: been dealing with issues arising from the series of large earthquakes we've had here since 2010, so not a great deal of new stuff or SCA activity for me in the past year I'm afraid. I've made some corrections for broken links and typos, and added a couple of bits in the following places:
- Depth Challenge: some more challenges added and updated
- Class Handout section: A4 PDFs based on some of the classes I have given; more info is available in the relevant sections on this site, but these could be handy as summaries or to pass on
I'm planning on getting the first half of my AS50 Map challenge online real soon now...
And the older "new" material, in case you missed it:
- Canterbury Faire Newsbooks: extra, extra, read all about it!
- Banco di Don Julio: or how to fund-raise in a period fashion, with more pictures and new info for the second year of the Banco's operation (now embarking on its third year!)
- More verses to the Tale of Don Julio as requested by Her Majesty of Lochac
- Banns of Wedlock: or how to announce your forthcoming nuptials in a period fashion
- Peerage Scrolls: my lovely Pelican and Laurel scrolls
- The Kerr Hoard: a collection of jewellery entered in a Tudor or Elizabethan Jewellery A&S competition
