Here is a copy of my Florilegium article for February, telling you what is new in the Florilegium this month.
I am always looking for new and interesting articles for the Florilegium on a wide variety of SCA and medieval subjects. So if you have written an article that would be of interest to other folks in the SCA, please send it to me for possible inclusion. Or send me another's article you think should be included with the proper contact info and I will contact them.
I am looking for additional information collectors, editors and others interested in helping with the Florilegium. If you think the Florilegium has been a useful project and you would like to help out, please contact me online or at the upcoming Gulf Wars event.
A Blending of the Past and Present
Over the past fourteen years in an ongoing effort, I have been collecting bits of useful information from various newsgroups, mail lists and articles submitted to me by their authors. In order to make this information available to others, I have placed this information in a series of files I call Stefan's Florilegium.
The Florilegium is on the web at: http://www.florilegium.org/
I am always interested in new articles. If you have written an article that would be of interest to others in the SCA, please send it to me for possible inclusion in the Florilegium. Contact me for more details.
I am also interested in volunteers who might be interested in helping me maintain the Florilegium. Everything from collecting materials, editing and web work is needed. Again, please contact me for more details.
