Where’s Marco? or On The Road To Burma
Although the Silk Road was opened by others, Marco Polo is the best known of the travelers through his narrative recorded by a fellow prisoner upon his return to Italy. This gave Western Europeans a glimpse into the exotic Far East along with new foods, fabrics and technologies. I invite you to journey with us to some of his ports of call, from Venice to Mongol-controlled China and back through Burma. Bring your compass, your astrolabe and your Dramamine…
The Championship and various fight scenarios, including a Marco Polo Melee, will take place during the afternoon. Fighter refreshments will be available. Lawn games, Archery and Thrown Weapons will be available for all to partake. Please bring your own Archery gear.
The Feast will feature an international menu of 4 courses served. Regional entertainment will ensue. There will be a live auction of SCA/Silk Road related items. There will be a ‘slave’ auction – slaves serving dessert to their new, if temporary, owners (slave kits provided). Please bring your feast gear.
There will be recognition of acts of Gallantry, Chivalry, and – of course – the new Champion.
