College of Three Ravens

While winter roars all around, the Industrious Barony of Thescorre wishes to invite all to join us for College of Three Ravens on February 29th, 2020 for a day of learning, companionship, shopping, and feasting.  We will be returning for a third year to St. Paul’s Lutheran School, located at 158 East Avenue, Hilton, NY 14468. The site will open at 9am and will close for clean-up at 10pm. There is abundant parking off-street in the site’s parking lot. The entire site is handicap-accessible, and the event is located on the ground level.

With this year’s College of Three Ravens comes an invitation to journey into the Viking Explorations while attending classes, engaging in martial activities, feasting on delicious dishes, and engaging with one another.  There is a wide range of learning opportunities that will occur throughout the day in a number of different classroom across the site. In addition to the various opportunities for scholarship, there is also a full-size gymnasium for pick-up Heavy Fighting & Fencing as well as fighting and fencing classes! Those wishing to volunteer their services as a marshal should seek out the marshals in charge.

For questions about classes or to register to teach, please contact the Chancellor of Classes, Lady Nicole du Marais (<-click link) or (585) 300-7319. Please note that classes can be on any and all aspects covered within the SCA; they do not need to be in any way related to the theme of Viking Exploration! For more information about classes, please see the C3R Classes Page .

Evening Feast Menu:

Their Excellencies asked me to provide a Viking-esque Meal.  I immediately thought of the transitional period of the Anglo Saxon Mead Halls during the 6th Century.

This feast is a representation of what could have been served during that time period.   Due to the lack of written documentation during the 6th Century, I largely relied on midden archeology to provide me with a list of available ingredients.  I then worked backwards, finding extant recipes that incorporate the available ingredients.

What I found was revealing.  The economies of Eastern England thrived after the collapse of the Western Roman Empire.  Foodstuffs, Rice from Spain, Wine from France, Olives and Spices from the Mediterranean, were imported into Eastern England in great quantity.  Although, luxury items, they were shared by the Lords and Ladies to their populaces via the Mead Hall.

The Mead Hall was a central Institution, a gathering place for business, and justice.  As well as the most important function:  The Feast!
