Agincourt A&S Tourney Scroll


On October 17th, the Barony-Marche of the Debatable Lands here in Æthelmearc celebrated the 10th anniversary of their Agincourt event. A dear friend of mine ran the A&S competition for the event and asked me to create an awards scroll for it, so I did! This was my first scroll going out to a member of the populace, so I was pretty nervous about it — but the recipient rather liked it, so I was satisfied.

The scrolls reads: <Sylvester> “showed great skill in the arts and sciences tourney at Agincourt in the Barony-Marche of the Debatable Lands on the seventeenth day of October, AS Fifty.”

Illumination is in India ink and is based on the 11th century rune stone 1047 U at Björklinge church in Uppsala, Uppland, Sweden.

Text is in English, transliterated from Latin script to Elder Futhark runes.
