Bright Ideas and True Confessions: How and What to Do and Why
Chirurgeons

al-Qanun
Ælflæd of Duckford

Before I even get into this, let me say that this is one position and topic in the Society that changes frequently. If you're interested enough to read this chapter, you might want to subscribe to al-Qanun. From a recent issue: Al-Qanun is published by the Chirurgeon Free Press for Chirurgeons and other interested parties in the Society for Creative Anachronism, Inc. It is published 6 times a year. . .$7 for 6 issues; please make checks payable to: SCA, Inc., East Kingdom Chirurgeons' Guild.

Mail your check, made out as above, to Devon Adair Bartholomy (Mark R.S. McMillan), 391 Ravenwood Avenue, Rochester NY 14619-1509. This publication has interesting articles, both on historical medicine (and, as their disclaimer says, "Many of the articles published document mediaeval medical practice and are not recommended for use by anyone"), modern first aid and other subjects of interest to chirurgeons. [editor's note 2/9/93--check first; this may no longer be available]

[editor's note 2006: http://www.chirurgeon.org/index.shtml]

If you don't want to wait for another issue or $7 is steep for you, you can buy Issues in Chirurgery, A Collection from Al-Qanun. It's $3.00 from SCA Inc., Stock Clerk, P.O. Box 360743, Milpitas CA 95036-0743. Make the check to SCA Inc. Ask for C.A. #42. If you want it to come first class, make the check for $3.60. C.A. stands for The Compleat Anachronist, which is the SCA's pamphlet series.
