My apprentice and I decided to try and build kites to take to events. Naturally we wanted to create kites appropriate to the SCA history but had trouble finding much out there. We did eventually manage to create a couple of kites though they didn’t fly very well. We have more work to do on them and it is a project we’ll get back to.
In the meantime here are a few links that are of use in researching kites for the SCA period.
