I am also known as Lady Ava Deinhardt, a SCAdian and general historical reenactment enthusiast. I have a graduate degree in historical archaeology and explore a wide variety of crafts and interests within the SCA (Society of Creative Anachronism). A general history nerd, I enjoy weaving, combat archery, target archery, crossbows, music, and medieval medicine.
I belong to House Stagsdale, made up of Sir Carlyle, myself, and his squires. I am a subject of the Kingdom of Atlantia, a member of the Barony of Lochmere, and I also belong to the household Domus Fabius. My fighting tabard bears the colors of the Black Company, a free fighting group focusing on melee tactics.
I have been in the SCA approximately five years. In that time I have had the opportunity to sew my own garb, experience Pennsic, build my own armor, learn to weave, make a crossbow, and learn a little bit of medieval crafts along the way. I hope this site will be a space for documentation of future projects and also just to celebrate all the activities I participate in as a historical reenactor.
Processing in Spring Crown, 2019, where I was awarded my AoA.
My very first Pennsic, 2018. I had to rapidly sew a week's worth of garb.
