<<I have narrowed it down to English or Scottish 1066-1300.
What I don't know is what the significant differences are between
these 2 cultures and within this time period as it applies to the
SCA. I know the general history, monarchs, wars, etc., but that
doesn't really help me regarding this. What I don't know is how
these cultures and time period affect my choice of garb, activities,
If you are looking at English or Lowland Scot there isn't a lot of difference
culturally. Highland Scot may be significantly different but I'm not sure
how much hard info we have for Highland Scot in that time frame. If you havent'
found this site already, try www.medievalscotland.org - it's one of the best
sites on the web for info on Scottish history and culture.
Persona choice only affect syour choice of activities in the SCA if you want
it to. Just because you choose to be, say, a Scot form 1250 doesn't mean that
you can't do blackwork or use Elizabethan brewing recipes if you want to. My
personal choice is to stick as close to what my persona would have known as
possible, but you certainly aren't required to.
