Masque of Courtly Love 9.1: Medieval Science Fair

The Marche of Alderford is pleased to present "Masque of Courtly Love 9.1: A Medieval Science Fair" on February 18, 2006, from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m., at Zion Lutheran Church in North Canton, Ohio.

Relive the fun of a Science Fair, just like when you were a kid, but now for adults, too, and now combined with the fun of these Current Middle Ages! Think up a creative project to demonstrate a principle or theory from medieval science—it needn't be "correct" by modern standards, as long as it's wrong in a period way. There will be categories for various skill levels and for different topics—and prizes for the winners!

If the Science Fair isn't your thing, have no fear. As in years past, we'll offer a whole range of activities, including:

  • Armoured combat
  • Rapier combat
  • Youth combat (if a Marshal is available)
  • Arts and Sciences classes
  • Bardic and/or theatrical entertainment

Of course, no Masque would be complete unless we sent you home with a full belly, and so we are proud to feature a feast by our own THL Francesca de Onorati, followed by dancing to help work off all that food.
