Thank you for maintaining such an amazing website. The wealth of information on there and your willingness to seek out more and updated information is greatly appreciated.  I have spent many hours diving through the pages :)

Thank you. 

I wasn’t aware that someone had already collected so much material in a single place. There is little to be gained by me copying it. Being an SCA site it is unlikely to disappear.  I originally started my files on SCA sign language about 15 years ago.

What I’ll do is add your message to the sign-language-msg file so folks can find this SCA sign language page.

I will continue to add anything on period sign language that I come across or gets submitted, since that page isn’t handling that.

What we have are videos.

Learning a three dimensional language from a two dimensional media leads to learning sign the wrong way (which is a hard habit to break).

Best practice dictates the best way to learn signs is face to face... then video chat... then videos. But not books or articles.

Can you link some of the resources from the College of Arms page?
