Those loathsome Northmen are at it AGAIN. Here we are minding our business, raising our cattle and they come back in the middle of the night and steal our female cattle. I have to say the Bulls are really upset now. No milk, no cheese, no butter and no feminine companionship for our male bovines (if you know what I mean.) Poor MaddieThe evil Northmen have sent us this picture to warn us, poor Maddie. So get up, get up I say oh sons and/or daughters of Eire. We have to protect our land and the honor of our girl cows from the evil, nasty, cruel, unhygienic, bad guys with hairy backs. Fighting for the honor of a good heifer, what could be better in life!?! (Ok, don't even go there) So gird whatever the heck you want to gird but be quick about it, don your Celtic garb, and join with the Canton of Nimenefeld and our bulls in a day of snorting and fighting and help us get back our cowgirls.

I'm looking for period documentation and pictoral evidence for decorative face painting. All I've found so far are adverts for people who do face painting and vague comments about "face painting is period" or "face painting is ancient". We have a few things on the Celts & woad, but, not much. Any information is much appreciated. Thanks!

On Oct. 31, A.S. XX, the branch called Sentinels’ Keep was founded, in the Region of Artemisia. Since then we have grown, from incipient Shire to Barony. Many of our founding folk have wandered away, but many more have come to take their places. Now Sentinels’ Keep invites her many friends from near and far to help us celebrate 20 years of our existence, on October 21. (This year we’re half as old as the Society!) Location:

Come to our feast of classes on all subjects artistic and scientific that we can muster. Although we hope to provide a wide range of classes we also have a ‘costume’ theme this year for our main stream of classes. Teachers are greatly welcomed to share their knowledge with the populace here.
If you are daunted by entering the Kingdom A&S Competition never fear the Glen Rathlin A&S Competition uses the same marking system but with a little less pressure on entries, you can only enter one item in one category if you wish to. Rules are available on the glen Rathlin webpage.

The Outlands premier period combat collegium is returning for AS XLI. This year, by popular demand, we will be bringing back Puck and Mary Curtis to teach Spanish Rapier. On the armored side we are bringing in Roger Siggs who will do a workshop on Intermediate Fiore. If you've attended a few basic Fiore classes and feel you've learned as much as you can from them, you NEED to be here.
Both fighting workshops will be all day long affaires (6 hrs of instruction) so you should come away overstuffed with new knowledge with which to improve your fighting prowess.
