Welcome to Cunnan, a Wiki collecting information for re-enactors of the Middle Ages and Renaissance with a heavy slant towards members of the SCA.

Cunnan is the largest SCA wiki in the world and anyone can edit our articles. You should be bold in updating pages! Articles can only be improved if people are contributing new information and improving old information. So add research information, how-to pages, event information and anything else you can think of.

12th Century coins: In England all currency was based on a single coin - the silver penny. Most close European countries operated the same way too. The English penny showed a picture of the king (or ruling queen) and their name on one side, and a design of a cross on the other side, ringed by text describing which moneyer was in charge of making the coin, and where they were located (i.e. their mint). (Zarnecki 1984) When smaller change was required, a penny could be cut into a half or quarter penny along the lines of the cross design. However these coins were easier to shave silver off than whole pennies, so people prefered to keep coins whole where possible.


Heraldic jargon: Checky refers to a field checquered with two different tinctures, one a colour the other a metal.
