Adiantum’s newsletter is The Bi-Cranial Bear.

The BiCranial Bear is the quarterly newsletter of the Barony of Adiantum (, the Lane County branch of the Society for Creative Anachronism, Inc ( Our focus is the material culture of the pre-1600 world. We started as a European medieval/Renaissance group but have broadened over the decades to embrace cultures throughout the world.

The Bear appears quarterly and is looking for articles of interest to historical re-creationists. We have activities that involve armored and rapier fighting; arts, crafts and sciences (cooking, clothing, wood working, metalwork, jewelry, gardening, etc.); music and dance, etc., etc. Our focus is primarily hands-on history, but articles about the general life-ways of a particular time/place are most welcome.

The newsletter is distributed electronically via the local group’s Facebook page and posted on our website. Please contact Pam Perryman at for more information.
