DOWNTIME NOTICE - UPDATE -- the move to the new consolidated sca.org.au server has been completed. cunnan.sca.org.au can (and should) be accessed via cunnan.lochac.sca.org from now on. The sca.org.au address is in the process of being re-purposed to matters relating to the SCAA and eventually the address 'cunnan.sca.org.au' will be retired. Also, I will be updating the version of MediaWiki this week so access to the wiki maybe sketchy. I will update this page once the update has been applied. -Will-

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 believed to be the largest SCA-related wiki in the world but 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. Cunnan should be applicable worldwide, so be mindful of regional differences - use comments such as "In Lochac...". If you see anything that is different in your area, add a note on your local variation.

News & Updates
November 24 Cunnan now has more than 4,186 articles!
July 12 Cunnan's software has been upgraded. If anything is broken you should leave a note at the Village pump.

Magna Carta: The Magna Carta or Great Charter was a formal record of an agreement between King John of England and a rebellious group of barons, sealed on 15 June 1215, at Runneymede meadow, outside Windsor. Four copies remain of a series sent out to sheriffs for public dissemination. The Charter was annulled by Pope Innocent III.

On 12 November 1216 the Charter was re-issued in the name of the 9-year-old Henry III by his regents, with certain clauses omitted. (more)
