           What is the SCA?

The Society for Creative Anachronism (the SCA) is an international organization dedicated to researching and re-creating the arts and skills of pre-17th-century Europe. Our “Known World” consists of 20 kingdoms, with over 30,000 members residing in countries around the world. Members, dressed in clothing of the Middle Ages and Renaissance, attend events which feature tournaments, royal courts, feasts, dancing, various classes & workshops, and more.

Our members are also welcome to recreate cultures of Asian or African societies of the time period and are considered by our Corpora laws as guests in European court.

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. 

Our 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!
