This last weekend Gerald and I attended the Spring Ithra in the Shire of Fire Mountain Keep. I was able to take two excellent courses, beginning with the extensive journey through Castles & Fortifications. It was enlightening.
The second course I participated in was Effects of Climate on Medieval Life taught by Dame Arwen Lioncourt. This was, without question, the most interesting Ithra class that I have taken. Dame Arwen presented a wide variety of evidence, both proxy (historical) and scientific, that demonstrated the significant influence that weather had on medieval life.
Science and the middle ages. I loved it!
Gerald taught his first Chainmail Ithra class in the afternoon. He’s now an official instructor. 🙂
