The SCA has come to cover a vast stretch of human history: all the years before the seventeenth century, all across the world. A wonderful myriad of cultures have thrived in that long time span, and the SCA gives us all opportunities to sample – or drink deeply – from the experiences and examples of these long-ago peoples.
Write a short research paper about a slice of history you find particularly enthralling. It could be a culture, an event, an individual, or a particular historical development.
Tell us something awesome about another time and place!
• Keep your entries to roughly five pages or 2,500 words
• Include your sources in some manner (c’mon, half the fun of reading papers is chasing down new sources)!

Judging and Prizes:
• The Prize: A Half-Price Books gift card will be awarded to two winners: one Mallet, Swan, or below, and another to a Laurel, Lily, or Hammer.
