SCA Warriors and Warlords visiting Boscobel

Who are those ladies and gentlemen camped out in Boscobel's Kronshage Park whose various & beautiful garments make them look as if they stepped out of the pages of 1001 Arabian Nights, Beowulf or the Legend of King Arthur? They are members of the Society for Creative Anachronism (meaning a thing taken out of its usual time period), an international group devoted to the study and re-creation of life during the Middle Ages (@ 300 - 1600 AD). The event in the park is Warriors and Warlords XVI, and is sponsored by the Baronies of Nordskogen (Twin Cities area, MN) and Jararvellir (Madison area, WI). If you'd like to learn more, stop by the library and have a look at our display of SCA literature or visit their website's newcomers page at http://www.sca.org/officers/chatelain/newcomers.html .

Free tours of the festival for interested visitors in street clothes will be given at 1 pm on Friday and Saturday, starting from the entry gate. Those wishing to spend more time exploring the festival on their own and fully participating may obtain period garb and information at the festival Information Point right across from the entrance gate. Full participants will need to pay an entry fee and minors must be accompanied by adults. Fee schedule

Kindest Thanks to festival Chatelain Rosanore of Redthorn for her invaluable assistance in teaching us about SCA and for providing the kids in our Boscobel Summer Library Program with an exciting storytime reading. Fare thee well!
