  She is correct. I contacted the Corporate Minister of Arts and Sciences.
  Mistress Juelda said that Corpora does not state 600 as being our
  beginning date. It just says Pre 17th century. The rumor of 600-1600 is
  all over the SCA and she has tried very hard to verify it. Mistress
  Juelda told me that it is only rumor. There is no starting date - only
  the ending date of 17th century. Unfortunately, I have been guilty of
  spreading that rumor myself.

As I wrote earlier today on the Eastern list...

  SCA is Western Europe pre 1600.  -- Sheridan

That is the first approximation.

In the document which (for lack of introducing legal terms) is our promise
to the IRS, we merely say "pre-17th-Century Western Culture."  That does not
mean we have to do all of it, it is just a boundary that we cannot step
outside of.

If you read the rest of the governing document materials, they talk about
"Middle Ages" "Medieval" and "Renaissance" re-creations.  Mostly middle ages
and renaissance, if you check word frequency.

We don't specifically prohibit Iron Age recreations, but we sure as heck
don't talk about doing it.  (In this case, I mean in the documents.)

The ice is thin here, Sheridan... don't break it.  (:-)
