Lady Vivian de Dunbar

I began my medievalist journey in college where we formed the medieval society. We met people from MSR and the SCA and attended my first Pennsic war knowing only 1 person there. That was Pennsic XXI and I have never looked back. Over the years my focus have been on fencing, sewing, embriodery and Belly dancing. Now my main focus is on the fiber arts and music. I try to split my time between the Holy Kingdom of Acre and the Barony of the Setmour Swamp.


Born in Scotland in the early part of the 14th century and moved to Bursa during the Crusades when I was very young. After Bursar was conquered by the Ottomans I became enchanted by their arts and culture. I tried to learn as much as possible about it.
