The East and the West have been discovering and rediscovering each other for centuries. Rome knew of strange peoples to the East they called Seres, the Silk People, who created the ethereal fabric favored by wealthy Roman women. Gold flowed from the Empire in rivers so Roman wives displayed more of their bodies then Roman husbands felt strictly necessary.
Surprisingly, the Roman Senate tried to ban silk on both moral and economic grounds.
Tigers, panthers and horses, paper, spices and jewels, slaves, musical instruments and religions traveled from one end of the known world to the other in the name of commerce and changed history in remarkable ways.
Come explore some of those ways with us as we celebrate Sacred Stone's Baronial Birthday in opulent style. We will learn and teach in classes and competitions of many sorts all the while watching the best of Sacred Stone's populace and talent vie for championship honors.
