Duct tape is period, didn't you know?
See, since we as SCAdians obviously can't recreate the Middle Ages without it, it's clear that people back then couldn't have existed without it either. And since artists didn't always put in the simple things when they painted manuscripts and frescoes (like seams, and duct tape), it's obvious that it existed, the artists just not bothering to include it because it was just so everyday to them. And no Duke or Abbess wanted to see duct tape in their beautiful painting of the Madonna or a mighty battle!
Tongue as firmly in cheek as Cynthia's with her wine barrel fillets....
