History

This page is the portal to the history of the Barony of NorthWoods.

A brief outline of North Woods past

Origins: Source-Midrealm Historian

The first tournament in North Woods took place May 2, A.S.V.

That's generally the date that North Woods dates from.

Back in the day, there was less formal paperwork. North Woods and Tree-Girt-Sea are the oldest Midrealm groups. Thorvald, Signy and Susan from North Woods brought the SCA first to the Midrealm (A.S. III went to a Bay Con in CA), but made only plans (no events/tourneys) for about 2 years. Between that time and A.S. V, Tree-Girt-Sea was formed.

North Woods lost contact with the West (actually, the West lost the North Woods letters of communication) and so when they re-established contact, they became known as the "Lost Barony."

And there you have it.
