What is the SCA?
Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA) is a non-profit, educational group that
re-creates the Western European Middle Ages and Asia from 600 A.D. – 1600 A.D.
We say "re-create" because instead of re-enacting specific historical
events, we choose aspects of pre-1600 life. Members also re-create through the
use of a "persona", a character who could have lived in period.
People in the SCA study and re-create martial activities including: armored combat, fencing, archery, siege weapons and more! Our artisans research, create and teach music, poetry, cooking, singing, dancing, metal-smithing, tailoring, armoring, etc. Through the hard work of dozens and even hundreds of volunteers, we host events all over the country every weekend.
The SCA encompasses all of the "Knowne World", nineteen Kingdoms across the globe. The Kingdom of Atlantia encompasses all of Maryland, the District of Columbia, North Carolina, South Carolina, most of Virginia and a small portion of Georgia. Atlantia is in turn divided into a number of local groups: Baronies, Shires, and Strongholds; and even further into Cantons and Colleges.
Barony of Marinus includes Virginia Beach, Norfolk, Chesapeake, and parts of
Suffolk, all within Virginia. We have members of all ages, from our
youngest members who were born in the last year to our most distinguished
members who have been with Marinus from the beginning. Our interests are
as varied as our members. Please enjoy our website as it touches on just
some of the many interests of our wonderful group.
As always, welcome to the Barony by the Sea!
