SCA History

Iago joined the Society in the fall of 1994. He was admitted to the Order of the Jambe de Lion on March 7 AS 32 by Brendan and Aryana. At Twelfth Night Coronation XXXV/2001 he was offered entry into the Order of the Laurel, but he chose to take a vigil until July Coronation XXXVI/2001, where he received the honour from the hands of Davin and Groa. During the time on vigil Iago completed his masterwork, a roll of arms based on the arms borne at the Siege of Caerlaverock Castle in the year 1300. After nearly 15 years in the Society he was presented with an Award of Arms from Their Majesties Vik and Inga at Daffodil Tournament XVIII/2009.
