      Artifacts of a Life IV

      PLEASE NOTE THE CHANGE OF DATE!
      The Barony Beyond the Mountain invites the populace of the East to join us on February 8, 2020 for Artifacts of a Life IV. 

      Have you ever thought how cool it would be to walk into a museum or an archive or an archaeological dig and see the things that your persona left behind? This is your chance to create that experience! 

      Depending on the culture and time period, these could be grave goods buried with you, recreations of items mentioned in your will or probate inventory ("my second best bed to my wife..."), documents such as charters, indentures, or receipt books, or items that might be found in an excavation of your life context -- all the ways that we know about the material culture of the past and can reconstruct a plausible life.  Examples can include votive gifts found in a bog, the tools found in your workshop when they dug up the old town to put in a parking garage, and the cookbook passed down for 8 generations.  In short, the things that could have ended up in a museum that were associated with your life, or the life of a persona that you wish to recreate (it doesn't have to be your current SCA persona).

      To add spice, there will be a contest and rich prizes will be given -- chests of goodies from artisans of the East, as well as materials for future projects.  The rules for the contest, as well as information about registering your entries, can be found at the event website, located at https://bbm.eastkingdom.org/events/artifacts-of-a-life/ .
