Slavic Interest Group Mailing List

List Information
The SIG List provides a discussion of the history and culture of the Medieval Slavic and Eastern European world. We are aimed specifically towards members of the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA) with Slavic, Central Asian, and Eastern and Central European personas, but we provide information and resources to anyone.

Anything relating to pre-1650 Slavic, Central Asian, Eastern European or Central European history, or anything Slavic, Central Asian, Eastern European or Central European as it pertains to the SCA is welcome here.
