Heraldry & Heralds – Heraldry is the system by which coats of arms and other armorial bearings are devised, described, and regulated. Heralds are the individuals who manage the system. In the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA), Heralds wear many hats throughout the course of an event. They help individuals develop and submit names and devices to the College of Arms. They also make announcements – upcoming events, who is about to take the field in a bout. Heralds are also the voice of our Nobility – the Kings and Queens, Princes and Princesses and Barons and Baronesses of our Known World.
Armorial – The Armorial is a collection of heraldic devices. In the actual Middle Ages, this would have been a book (or many books). But in today’s world, this may be found online.
