College of Three Ravens

Readin', Writin', and 'Rithmatic, while indeed meritorious subjects of study, are NOT among those being offered at The College of Three Ravens. Classes will include a myriad of topics on historical practices, as well as those regarding our Society's activities in these Current Middle-Ages!!! Subject matter includes scholarship in the finer arts, specialized sciences, and medieval combat (yes, fighting classes, too!). Plus, there will be ample opportunity to actually practice these many pastimes (pun not intended). Education, Fencing, Fighting, Dancing, Drumming, and more will surely sate the intellectual and competitive cravings of adults and children alike!
