The Canton Museum of Art in Canton, Ohio recently held an exhibition entitled Illuminating the World: The Saint John's Bible, centered around a display of the Saint John's Bible, a medieval bible made with modern techniques. In conjunction with the exhibit, the museum hosted a medieval festival featuring members of the Marche of Alderford, the local chapter of the SCA. (photo)
Jessica Holbrook of the Canton Repository visited the festival and spoke with attendees and participants, including Sgt. GuyJacques (Dan Plott), Senschal of Alderford, during a combat demonstration. "People are drawn to combat, but the main focus of the group is education. I hope (kids) understand it's not just the physicality and the brutality, it's the honor and respect for one another."
