Instructor's Kingdom: Avacal, Time Zone: MST
4:30 PM - 5:30 PM
Looking at Leif Eriksson, and beyond, to lesser known Atlantic explorers (Phoenicians? Romans? King Arthur? St. Brendan? The Bristol Sailors?), this session will examine SCA period literature to gain an understanding of the Medieval Atlantic world-view. Archaeological ‘evidence’ will be introduced to ‘clarify and verify’. Maps and text will be presented to give context and add some ‘pretties’.
Class will not be recorded.
