Good Morning Knowne World! The University of Atlantia will be hosting the Knowne World Sciences Symposium at our virtual session on June 12, 2021.
Current KWSS tracks include: Medicine & Apothecary, Alchemy, Physics & Engineering, Astronomy, The History of Science, and Biology & Botany.
The University will be accepting 150 classes into our June session catalog. These classes are provisioned on a first come/first served basis, with a priority given this session to science classes in support of the Knowne World Sciences Symposium. Classes exceeding the 150 limit will be waitlisted pending any cancellations that may create an open class slot. Should your class be waitlisted, the Dean of Academics Lady Esa will be in touch.
The Known World Colegio de Iberia sponsored by the West Kingdom will be held over the first weekend of June 2021.
This is a weekend of virtual classes on the lives and times of the people who dwelt in the lands which we now call Spain and Portugal. The symposium covers the period from the Muslim Umayyad Conquest, and includes the great Muslim city-states and the four Christian kingdoms (Kingdom of Castile y Leon, Kingdom of Aragon, Kingdom of Navarre and Kingdom of Portugal), ending with death of the Habsburg king Philip II. We also explore some of the worlds who experienced colonisation by these kingdoms.
The Zoom room details and password will be made available closer to the date and advertised on the Facebook event and the website. We will be having a range of breakout rooms depending on the number class tracks required.
There are a range of different roles that we will need to make this event as easy and as fun as possible to run. If you would like to assist us in anyway please fill in this form: https://forms.gle/fHSy4DA7SkB37Y837
The stewards, Duqessa Juana Isabella de Montoya y Ramirez, and Duqessa Constanzia Moralez y de Zamora, would like to invite you to the Known World Colegio de Iberia which is sponsored by the West Kingdom. This virtual event looks exclusively at history and activities practiced in Portugal and Spain prior to the death of King Phillip II.
We have teachers from throughout the Known World as well as some of the historical reenactment groups within Europe. We have a website which will contain information about classes and our teachers, as well as the schedule. This is getting updated all the time so visit regularly! That is located here:

Greetings from Dagonell the Juggler, the Known World Symposiums Advertising Deputy, working under the Society MoAS! Good gentles we have not one, but two Known World Symposiums coming up on Labor Day Weekend!
And here is the second!
Known World Agriculture & Forestry Symposium Aug 30-Sept 2, 2019
Elchenburg Castle Farm
2239 Center Road, Boonville, NC 27011
This is the penultimate opportunity to gather the best teachers and exhibits dealing with period Agriculture, Land Use Practices, and Livestock Practices. This will cover everything from crop farming to kitchen gardens, agri-business, forestry, animal husbandry.
If it involved turning the land to production or domestication, management, and use of animals in human activities in anyway, then it will probably fall under the umbrella of this symposium. This is a celebration of all things to do with period Agriculture, Forestry, Land Management, and Food Production and the use of the harvest and get of those occupations. Classes, demonstrations, discussions, songs, and stories dealing with these activities, skills, and products will fill the weekend.
This is an SCA event focused on all aspects of pre-1600 agriculture, forestry practices, land and livestock management, and the use of produce and get from these industries. Attendance is open to SCA participants, both paid members and non-paid friends. All attendees are asked to make an attempt to dress in the style of pre-1600 European cultures or any ethnicity that was known to them.
Greetings from Dagonell the Juggler, the Known World Symposiums Advertising Deputy, working under the Society MoAS! Good gentles we have not one, but two KW Symposiums coming up on Labor Day Weekend!
Here is the first!
The Middle Kingdom and the Shire of Shattered Crystal invite the Known World Cooks, Bards, Brewers, and Vintners to the 8th Known World Bardic Congress and Cooks Collegium, to be held at Camp Dubois, Wood River, IL, (near St Louis) on Labor Day weekend 2019 (30-Aug-2019 – 02-Sep-2019).
198 North Main Street
Wood River, IL, 62095
Go to http://tilted-windmill.com/kwcb2019/ to see what classes are already planned; sign up to teach; suggest classes that you’d be interested in taking. Teachers still needed. Register Now!!!

Kenda Mc Cormack
4711 Culp Ln
Bethalto, IL, 62010 email@example.com
Lodging Options: We anticipate that most attendees will choose to camp. There is plenty of space available. There are no fees for camping. Bunk Space: We have a total of 32 bunks available (16 top and 16 bottom) at $5 each for the weekend. Pre-reg for bunks with paid registration fees. Hotel options listed on the website. http://tilted-windmill.com/kwcb2019/
Accessibility: This is a primitive site. The indoor bathrooms are handicapped-accessible. Beyond that, we’re working under 1800s-like conditions.
Electrical Availability: Electricity is in very short supply. The entire site runs on two breakers. There are plans to augment that slightly with a small solar farm. This should help out with recharging small electronics – cell phones, camera batteries, and the like. We do not expect to be able to charge Larger devices such as CPAPs, marine batteries, or laptops on site.
To make it easier for our nonCanadian friends to attend and pay for the event, we have been approved to use ACCEPS for our registrations.
We would also like to extend an invitation to all heralds and scribes to teach at the symposium. The class proposal form is now live on the website as well. You may also send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like more info or to propose a class.
Over the years, there has been an excellent relationship between the heralds and scribes of our two kingdoms, and we are very much hoping that many of our friends from across the border will make the trip to teach, share, and learn. We are very much hoping to see many of you this coming June!
