We are a FREE educational society devoted to the study of medieval culture in the Outremer circa 1100-1300AD. This is the time of the Crusades where anyone from almost anywhere could meet, as it was the ultimate melting pot. All races, religions and nationalities lived together, and famously fought. Most of the crusader era was of peace, and these moments of peace is what we reenact.
Some of our research involves recreating aspects of life in the medieval Outremer, from our persona displays to medieval house construction! All of this within the tight context of our city of Tortosa. Tortosa, was within the County of Tripoli (Syria), where we pretend to occupy in our medieval reenactment.
We plan to produce a quarterly journal, and put out papers as well as perform new research on crusader topics as well as topics on general medieval interest. (This will begin in late 2015)
Located in Bozeman Montana, home of MSU (Montana State University.) Students and faculty are welcome with membership discounts. Membership costs are FREE for non voting members with other membership options to be seen in our Membership section.
