Medieval Science in Ye Tavern

Rally to the argument,
you Laurels, teachers, presenters, and educated riff-raff,
and come to Ye Tavern!

Hear the raised voices of discussion,
you curious populus, inquiring minds, and thoughtful personas,
and come to Ye Tavern!

For the Inaugural


To be held at
The Great Northern War,
Northern Reaches,

This event will be an enjoyable opportunity to share your medieval science interests with others. Perhaps, it will be an occasion to promote your medieval science interests outside your local Barony. Maybe, it will be a chance to form new connections with like-minded medieval science interested people. The meeting is in the Tavern, so anything may happen.

Medieval science topic presentations will be 20-30 minutes in duration, (limited by the lack of modern electronic presentation tools), and voluntary accompaniment of mannerly consumption of Tavern beverages in polite moderation.

Contributors are expected to be attending The Great Northern War. Drones, Golems, voodoo animated corpses or electronic witchery will not be considered in the absence of the presenter. All presenters are strongly encouraged to consider transforming the exposition material into an article for Cockatrice.
