Order of the Laurel

The Order of the Laurel is one of the Peerages, equal in standing with the Knights, Pelicans, and Royal Peers. It is the highest award given in the SCA for excellence in the Arts and Sciences. Companions of the Order of the Laurel are craftsmen and artisans recognized for their research and skill in crafts practiced during the Middle Ages and Renaissance, and their willingness to teach those skills to others. Members of the Order are called “Master” or “Mistress” and wear a medallion with a laurel wreath.

Secretary: Mistress Jennet of Tewkesbury
