Never Too Early for love
Good Cousins All
On Feburary 3, Storvik is hosting an event which, in concept, is a high
middle ages recreation of a (centuries earlier) Court of Eleanor of
Aquataine, known to them only by legend. Included in this
recreation of a recration will be a Court of Love.
Not only do I write to invite all interested to attend
(hint: see event announcement below), but to inquire of any
information/sources regarding medieval recreations of earlier events (ala
the Last Tourney, near and dear to our hearts but alas NOT medieval) and
the kind of errors/misinformation to which such pagents (if any) were
If any of you have such information, please e-mail me.
