In the Society of creative anachronism my name is Silwa af Swaneholm. From the start it was hard to get used to be called another name but today it is natural to me. My interest for the medieval time started when I was 18 years old and I was reading a course at my “gymnasium”. I did my first medieval dress, a purple linen dress and I went on my first visit to Visby and the medival week. There have been many visits to Gotland since then. One year after my first visit to Visby I meet a friend at Kungahälla (a medieval market that I was visiting) and he intruduced me to Gotvik. Since then I have been a member of the SCA and today the hobby are more of a lifestyle containing some of my closes friends and my extra family.
Since Swedish is my native language I apologize for grammatical errors and misspellings, and hope you can understand my blog posts anyway.
