Kingdom A&S

Last weekend was An Tir’s Arts & Sciences and Bardic Championship.

My dear friend Eulalia took 2nd place in the overall, triple-entry competition. See her blog for the documentation on medieval pies, women’s work in York, and scribal illumination.

I went with a single entry on Roman Sexual Imagery. I plan to polish it up, based on feedback from my judges, and offer it again locally. It was a challenge to display, given that in our culture body parts  are considered offensive / shocking / not for children’s consumption.

Next time I’d like to set up inside a tent.

My oral presentation was a disaster… I suddenly got nervous, spoke too rapidly, and missed some of my major points that I wanted to make. Trying to use only scholarly language, after speaking more colloquially with my friends, was a hard shift to make on the fly. I should have practiced more, but with the sudden housing upheaval I’m lucky I got my display done!

I’ll do better next time! 🙂
