This year has been a whirlwind, and I have progress to show off in multiple areas – Culinary, Scribal, Millinery, Costuming, etc. My exhibit is an overview of the different projects I’ve been working on in these areas this year.

In 2013 I decided to do a year of Viking food for events to match my persona. A short time later, after digging into research I realized this was not going to be a short term project. There are very few primary sources, arguably there are none. Everything that we have is secondary or tertiary and undoubtedly wrong. This presentation is my evolving work at becoming steadily less wrong.
