Aoife Honeybourne went to her first event at the age of six. Her father was heavily involved in the Society, hosting archery and heavy combat practice in the Shire of Heronter, Aethelmearc. She fell out of touch with the SCA, but rediscovered it in her teens. Since then, she has been growing more active, and falling deeper down the rabbit hole of historical research.
While she enjoys researching and cooking period food, historical brewing, icon painting, and some fiber arts, her primary passion is beekeeping, and all things related. She hopes to contribute her research on the topic to the knowledge base of the society.
Usually Norse, sometimes Saxon, and woefully confused the rest of the time. She expects to firm up a better persona and wardrobe in the coming months...
