What is the SCA?
The Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA) is a non-profit, educational group that re-creates the Western European Middle Ages in pre-1600 times. We say "re-create" because instead of re-enacting specific historical events, we choose aspects of pre-1600 life to re-create through the use of a "persona", a character that we create whot 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,
metalsmithing, 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 futher into Cantons and Colleges.
As always, welcome to the Barony by the Sea.
