"Smalls" in period: children or underwear?

Visit Website
Description Many SCA people use the term "smalls" to refer to children, as in "I was busy looking after my smalls so I missed the tournament." Many other SCA people find this usage irritating, and say things such as "Smalls were, in period, underclothes -- not children." This article attempts to clear up the confusion and find out if "smalls" was used in period, and if so, what it really meant.
