Being a collection of Arts and Sciences projects that include the use of heraldry according to the conventions of the Society for Creative Anachronism, Inc, and the customs of the Middle Kingdom and Principality of Northshield.

The following articles are based on articles written for Caer Anterth Mawr's newsletter, The Tower.
