About this blog

This is the boring post, the "who we are and what this is" post.

So, this is a blog primarily for articles/news/posts by a bunch of SCA (Society for Creative Anachronism) folks who are interested in researching and recreating the sciences of medieval Europe.

By day, I'm a professional astronomer and independent technology consultant.  By night, and at weekends, I'm interested in the history of science, particularly astronomy in the middle ages and renaissance in both Europe and the Middle East.  I also fight rapier, which so far, appears to be applying the principles of leverage and geometry to sharp pointy things. ;)

Other authors will be added to this list once I have them!

  1. By day I'm a mild mannered doctor, but out of hours (assuming I'm not working them!), I turn into the Incredible Geek, with special interests in the History of Medicine and Surgery, with particular interest in the 16th century.

    I too fight rapier, which appears to be the process of applying the principles of biomechanics and anatomy to sticking hypothetically sharp things into people at rather more than a scalpel's length!
