Medieval Medicine A&S Scroll
Awarded to Lady Emmerald d'Avignon at Fool's Event VI



This was a depiction of a dry hot bath.  The A&S competition dealt with Medieval medicine, and this was an example of crafting put together to support the science. The drawing was based upon two drawings taken from Ten Books of Surgery of the French barber surgeon Ambrose Pare (published 1569, France).

Armored Combat Ribbon Tournament Scroll
Awarded to Sir Eisenwulf at Fool's Event VI


This is an example of resetting a dislocated elbow.  We had a William Marshal ribbon tournament, which pushes fighters pretty hard, so the scroll reflected how they bravely fight despite the rigors of that form of combat. The drawing was based a drawing taken from Ten Books of Surgery of the French barber surgeon Ambrose Pare (published 1569, France).

Pine Box Fencing Tournament Scroll
Awarded to Lord Jethro Stiller at Fool's Event VI

This was a Medieval first aid chart in dealing with common war wounds.  The tournament was to be a Pine Box Tournament, which is a single elimination tournament with wounds retained.  The idea is that are two ways out of the tournament--either you win the tournament or you leave in a pine box.  It seemed like a good scroll idea. The drawing was taken from the published works of French barber surgeon Ambrose Pare.

Queen's Rapier Championship winner scroll
Awarded to Lord Eric Grenier de le Barre at Fool's Event VI

We had two scrolls for the Championship tournament.  The Queen was not certain that she was going to take the winner as the champion, so we had a scroll for whoever won the tournament and a scroll for who was chosen to be Champion.  Kusar made the Champion scroll, and I made this one.  We used the same document as our basis and then worked alone to see what we came up with.  They were similar but very different.  This was mine.  It is based upon the front plate of the True Arte of Defense by Giacomo Di Grassi (published 1570, Italy).   The text is in Italian and was translated by Don Lyev Davidovitch.

Writ of Summons
Awarded to Don Ian "Keyard" Muir














Award of Arms given for Middle Eastern Dance at Pennsic War XXXVII AEthelmearc Royal Court
Awarded to Oolah the Magnificient

This is my first attempt at gilding, and the experiment gave the clear understanding that producing something this gilded is tedious work (but worth finishing). As it was my first attempt at gilding, I greatly simplified the ornate detail of the original design in my reproduction. This scroll was to be awarded to the Oolah the Magnificient at AEthelmearc Court during Pennsic War XXXVII. I learned later that the rag paper on which it was done caused the calligraphing ink to bleed, but the scribes found a way to rescue the scoll. This piece was based upon a page from an Ottoman Turk Islamic manuscript (dated 1775-1776 AD).
