lesser noble from the town I live in in the later case or the city of

But now that I am done having children for a least a little while I would like to get into to garb that I joined the SCA for!

I make cheese, keep sheep and goats and pursue a number of textile arts in that world and in the present day. I am looking forward to sharing thoughts with other like minded medievalists. I find historical research to be endlessly seductive. I am so glad to know that there is a group like this one!
