Office of the Herald

Heralds in the SCA have many jobs and many names. Book heralds help research period naming and armorial practices for the registration of names and armory for the populace. Voice heralds call announcements, proclaim who is fighting upon the field, and declare the voice of nobility in court. Protocol heralds record awards and honors bestowed, draft ceremonies, and determine precedence and other period legal niceties in all sorts of situations. Heralds also work closely with the College of Scribes, whose art and artistry with pen and brush make what we do beautiful. The Beacon Herald is responsible for the conduct of the College of Heralds, the Masters/Mistresses of the List, and for all the Heralds and Pursuivants of the local branches of the Society under the Crown of Meridies.
