Caristiona, known in the modern world as Tina Bean, discussed whata drew her to the SCA and what keeps her interested. “I went on a trip to Europe and really enjoyed a lot of the medieval things I saw,” Ms Bean said. “I also have a lot of hobbies, such as herbal medicine, weaving, calligraphy, cooking and illumination, so for me the society became a way for me to combine all of my interests and channel them in one direction.”
