Who we are

Schola Historia’s purpose is the exploration of history. Through means of workshops, talks, demonstrations, and experimental archaeology we hope to widen the scope of understanding of how life was lived through various time periods of the past. The goal is to build immersive spaces for people to work and study within, thus deepening the experience. Experimental archaeology is key to this; to read and study a subject is a noble pursuit in itself, but then to create it, to experience it, is much different.

We hope to attract a community of professional scholars, amateur historians with information to share, and anyone with a passion to learn. Schola Historia is not the people who started it, but the people who come to share, to teach and be taught, and to live in this community of open minds and inquisitive souls all with a love of the past.

Events

Schola Historia: Living on the March

This inaugural event will focus on daily life on the march between the years 1475 to 1650 in Western Europe.

Memorial Day weekend, 2018 (May 26, 27, 28)

Location: The Fort at No. 4 in Charlestown, New Hampshire.

The site is a reproduction of the original 18th century fort built in that location. The event’s time period remains 1475-1650 and as such we will only be using parts of the fort itself, with the majority of our encampment in the fields and adjoining grounds.

While there will be marching, pike drills, black powder, and general soldiering; this event is not intended for only men. Historically, women made up 2/3rds of any marching unit and we aim to be as historical as possible. There will be classes and workshops specifically for women on the march, but open to anyone who wants to participate.

This is an immersive event, so a documentable outfit is your first necessity. Guidelines for the event can be found here, or you can download this pdf. These guidelines are to inform you of the standards we hope to achieve for participant personas and presentation. If you need help meeting any of these guidelines, please contact us and we will do our best to assist you. These guidelines are not meant to dissuade anyone from attending, but are here to set the tone for this immersive event.
