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.
