From Academia.edu: The Representation of Lordship and Land Tenure in Domesday Book

Bookcases in the library of the University of Leiden, 1610

A recent email from Academia.edu recommended the paper The Representation of Lordship and Land Tenure in Domesday Book by Stephen Baxter, faculty member in the Department of History at the University of Oxford. The paper is embedded below.

I encourage anyone interested in late Anglo-Saxon and early Conquest England to check out his papers at:

In Memoriam: The Passing of Aine nic Taillieur

The words of Mistress Kristine nic Taillieur:


Courtesy of the Knowne World Memorial Shield Project

On September 3, 2019, Annette Barker (nee Taylor,) known to many as Aine nic Taillieur, passed from this world to the next. Lest any question her might, let all know of her story. Though unusual, a clan of Draugr arose in her homeland which called themselves Cancer. A strong warrior woman, she fought bravely for two years, wounding and destroying members of the clan through guile, knife, and even resorting to a poison which pained her deeply and caused the loss of her locks.

After battling fiercely, however, it soon became apparent to Aine that the war could not be won without great cost. Knowing that, without a home base, the enemy could be stopped, she planned one final tactic. She pulled the Draugr into a false sense of security, allowing them to believe they had won and drawing them into a tight circle around herself. At the last moment, she set the land about her ablaze, trapping the Draugr within. Alas, she too, was trapped.

Thus passed Aine Nic Taillier from this world, her battle cry screamed across the land and the sounds of Savage Daughter ringing in her ears.

Such was her love for those around her, to protect them from the enemy. Such was she a mother, who nurtured all who met her. Such was she loved that, upon hearing of her passing, cups were raised across the meadhall to toast to her victory and to the memory of such a great woman.

Skol, for the hero Aine nic Taillieur, who chose to fight until the end, taking the enemy with her

Aine nic Tailliuer in Hospital

Mistress Kristine nic Tailliuer shares on Facebook:


The time we hold with our friends is precious, even more so when we find that the end of that time is drawing unexpectedly nigh.

Such is the case for Annette Barker, known by many who love her as THL Aine Nic Tailliuer. The time she has left is short, likely anywhere from a week to a couple weeks.

We know that she is beloved in her community and kingdom and her family, chosen and biological is large. Her husband and children are working with her and her care team to ensure she is comfortable for as long as possible.

Please refrain from coming to the hospital without first reaching out to the family to ensure she is able to accept visitors.

She has requested that Aston Tor, The Broken Harp, and her friends in Axed Root work together to hold a celebration of life for her at a later date.

We will continue to update as we have more information.

Announcements – Project Corpora Updates

Men harvesting wheat, Queen Mary’s Psalter, circa 1310. Public domain in the US

Greetings to all,

From John Fulton, President, SCA, Inc.

As mentioned in my last President’s Report to the community there is a project to review Corpora to clean up any confusing or outdated language in order to make it more “user-friendly”.  This will be an ongoing project and will not affect the Board presenting proposals to the membership on substantive changes such as the recently suggested change to Corpora IV.B.1 which would remove the mention of gender as a requirement for Royal Lists.

At the July 2019 meeting, the Board approved the first set of edit changes/clarifications for commentary to the membership.

Information about this project can be found here:

https://sca.org/BOD/PresReport/CorporaEditAug2019.pdf

A copy of the relevant parts of Corpora showing the proposed edits can be found at the above link.  Edits are red-lettered.

Also available is a copy of an explanation of the proposed changes.  Most of these are editorial in nature only.  This includes changes to the Glossary, some standardized language cleaning, and moving toward gender-neutral terms.  This also proposes removing such phrases as Western Europe in order to properly include many other cultures within the scope of the Society’s pre-17th Century reenactment activities.  This part was addressed recently by the Board.

This is the first of the current attempts at editing and updating Corpora.  It will not be the last. Nor is this considered to be a complete and finished document. 

The intent of this project is NOT to do substantive game-changing alterations.

Please send all comments to comments@sca.org with the subject line “Corpora Edit Comments – Set 1”.  Include your modern and SCA name and membership number if you have one.

Also, please feel free to email me also at president@sca.org with questions or suggestions.

Many thanks to Kelly Magill and Lis Schraer for helping me so much.

In service,

John Fulton
