The art of archery and thrown weapons does not end at any Kingdom’s borders.  There is a wealth of knowledge and information throughout the Knowne World waiting to be discovered and shared.  We have provided below links to various SCA and SCA related videos, websites, handbooks, and manuals to assist those who strive to gain knowledge.  It is our hope that these resources will prove useful.  This portion of the website will continually be updated and we will continue to add additional videos as they become available.
