New to the SCA?
The Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA) is a history club devoted to studying and re-creating the best aspects of life in the Middle Ages and Renaissance. It could be considered a historical re-enactment or living history organization. Unlike most of these, however, the SCA does not concentrate on a narrowly defined time period, let alone a specific war or other event. It also has no minimum standard of authenticity.

SCA activities are open to everyone and have more to do with re-creation (and recreation) than with re-enactment. The only requirement for attending an event is wearing an attempt at pre-17th century garment. This easily attainable requirement is one of the strengths of the Society. It makes it possible to participate on a small budget. It also means participants with all degrees of skill and spare time can find their niche. As long someone is interested in an aspect of Mediaeval or Renaissance life, there is a place for them in the SCA. Perhaps this is why some describe the SCA as a large group of people with interlocking hobbies.

To find out more about the SCA, you can contact the Event or visit the following sites
