Heraldry
Description
This class is intended for gentles recreating a persona from the Nordic regions (Scandinavia, Iceland and those areas influenced by their culture) during the late 8th through early 12th centuries. Heraldry did not develop until the middle of our period, but there is no reason that a person wishing to study and recreate an earlier Norse persona should not be able to develop heraldic themes that draw from that culture while meeting requirements for SCA registration. During this class we will look at ideas to help you move beyond ""typical"" SCA heraldic designs into ones that draw on the rich culture of what is commonly called ""the Viking era"".
