The amount of historical evidence for Yo-Yo’s in my SCA period is limited at this point, but there is plenty before and after so I’m not to worried at this point.  I’ll keep digging and adding here as I go along of course.

In the meantime I found a lot of cool stuff to start with just in general.  One has to start someplace with a new skill, but I think that Yo-Yo’s are fun so this should be interesting and it might just make it into my Carnival.

    Another history article on Yo-Yo’s that focuses on medieval era:

    A couple of references to 16th Century Yo-Yo’s as weapons in the Philipines. Suspect at this point until I can find some more solid support.
