  • I note that your analysis does not take into account the question as to whether an {era-N} persona may have knowledge of and truck with an {era-N+1} practice or tecnhology. Can, for example, a Viking persona ever acknowledge Elizabeth weaponry ? -- Simoncursitor
I don't know if you're addressing me or not, but since I made the most recent change, I'm guessing you are. Frankly, this term is one that I've never seen or heard before I encountered it on this wiki, which is why most of my changes/additions have been to indicate things like regional use. That said, I'm not sure how to answer your question. I suppose it would depend on the individual person, really. Since most SCA events are not particular chronologically focussed, it would be difficult for anyone to interact only with folks from their own age. It would also depend on what you mean by acknowledge. In a tournament, forinstance, if I hit an early period Celt with a late period Greatsword, I certainly expect him to take the shot:-) AlexandreDavigne 02:57, 11 November 2006 (EST)
