EARLY PERIOD is published quarterly for the personal amusement of Fuiltigherne ni Ruadh O'Finn and for the advancement of early period arts, crafts, sciences and research. EARLY PERIOD deals in the pre-1066 A.D. topics of interest to persons with early period personae in the SCA or similar organizations.
Some words from herself:Some time ago we became concerned by the lack of enthusiasm or knowledge about early period crafts, arts, personae develpement, etc. in the Society. To be sure there are some pockets where persons of our persuasion are cultivated and indeed admired, but ther eare far more where being early period is equated with having seen the latest Conan movie multiple times. The purpose of this publication is education, not only of those whith early personae, but for those who may not fully appreciate the work and research involved in being truely early period. We are actively looking for articles of interest to people from early periods. You get a free copy of "Early Period", our undying gratitude and the thrrill of seeing your stuff in print. I only ask that your submission be legible and historical. Please include sources. I'll be retyping it, so don't worry about camera-ready copies. If you don't feel confident of your drawing ability, do your best and I'll redraw any illustrations for you. Submission deadlines are 6 weeks before any given publication date:
