We are part of a medieval history group called the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA).  In the society, each person develops a "persona".  A persona is an imaginary character that they pretend to be from Medieval Europe (or sometimes from further afield)  some where between the fall of the Roman Empire to the start of the renaissance.  My son is really starting to get into his persona and is on a real "authenticity kick", which I heartily endorse.  He is a 12th Century Norman Crusader.  Here are a few of his recent projects:

This is his Norman kite sheild that he designed and made.  His heraldry is painted on the front.

This is his kit.  It contains items that a crusader would have carried with him.  He has been researching this for quite awhile.  I'll post pictures of the inside of his kit soon.
