Unto the Populace of Atlantia,
The Editor of the Compleat Anachronist is looking to produce a CA for
working with Children. I have included in this email the missive from
Mistress Tonwen. If you, or anyone you know, would like to contribute,
please find in the email below information on what kinds of articles are
being sought, as well as the details of the submission of the articles. I
know that Atlantia has some fantastic Children's Activities(I have seen them
in action!) that could go into this Compleat Anachronist to share with the
rest of the Knowne World. Please don;t be shy...write them up and share
them with the CA!
Please direct any questions or submissions to the CA editor at

Chancellor for Youth Activities, Atlantia
My name is Tonwen ferch Gruffudd Aur, and I'm the new
editor of The Compleat Anachronist.
I want to publish an issue of The Compleat Anachronist
that is intended specifically for our children, from
about 8-12 years of age. I am searching the Known
World for people who have special talents working with
our kids and helping them enjoy their experience in
the SCA, who might be interested in contributing an
article to this issue.
In general, what I'm looking for is a researched and
documented article on a period topic, with a small
project that can be completed by a child with minimal
adult help. For example, an article on hand sewing
may demonstrate stitches used in the middle ages,
materials used, and types of threads and needles, with
a pattern and instructions for making a linen coif.
The articles should be about 4-6 pages long (1"
margins, double spaced, 10 point font), including the
project section, illustrations, photographs, and
references. Longer or shorter articles can be used,
but the author should contact me so I can plan the
Chances are that Atlantia already has material
available that would be perfect for use in the CA for
kids. If you know of anyone who teaches a great class
on any topic that is popular with your children, I
would greatly appreciate it if you would help me get
in touch with them.
Topics and projects that are being considered include
but are not limited to:
-Hand sewing (make a linen coif)- TAKEN
-Leather working (make a leather pouch)
-Cooking (making bread? cheese? pasties?)
-Brewing (non-alcoholic beverages)
-Cross Stitch (make a pin cushion or other small item)
-Scribal Arts (we're still working on this one)
-Toys- marbles (make period marbles and play a period
game with them)
-Toys- balls (make small leather balls and learn to
Thank you very much for your assistance with this
