This is the new home of the Unofficial SCA Heraldry Wiki, since wikispaces closed.
It has been suggested that a searchable wiki for SCA Heraldry would be useful. And when the subject comes up, it is determined that, ideally, someone with knowledge of Wiki programming should take on this project, hosting it at a secure server that "we" own and control. After six years of living on a wiki farm, we now have a "real" wiki here!!
If you have some competence in SCA Heraldry and/or wiki programing (MediaWiki) and would like to help, you're welcome to join in!
Templates have been created for your use. See the Basic Instructions in the left sidebar.
Entries should refrain from personal opinions, and should quote or carefully paraphrase official SCA Heralds documents such as the Standards for Evaluation of Names and Armory (SENA), the Glossary of Terms, Collected Precedents, Letters of Acceptances and Returns, and other recognized references. The original sources should be clearly noted and, if possible, linked.
WARNING: Do not cite this website as a reference. This website is a collection of information from more reliable sources brought together here for easy reference. If you have found the information you seek here, go to the original sources of the information which are clearly indicated (and usually linked) within each article.
