The Society for Creative Anachronism was founded in 1966 and is incorporated as a nonprofit educational and research organization. We are an international organization devoted to the research and re-creation of pre-seventeenth century life, employing knowledge of history to enrich participants’ lives and the lives of others through events, demonstrations, and other educational venues.
We re-create all facets of life in the Middle Ages: Archery, wood-working, metalwork, armor making, dance and performing arts, weaving, cooking, embroidery and calligraphy and illumination are only a few of the crafts we engage in. Combat is safely recreated using rattan or blunted-steel weapons and body armor.
The Society is based on the landed nobility of the European Middle Ages. Their dress and music, their literature and sports, and above all, the chivalric ideals of their period. All serve to unify our events and activities. Our regional and local organization sets aside the modern pattern of elected representatives to give us a sense of what it was like to live in the world of court and castle, so that our studies can go beyond literature and artifacts into the emotional reality of former times.
One of the best things about the SCA is the opportunity it presents to learn about different medieval arts & sciences, about fighting, archery, and deeds of service. In the SCA you will find a lot of people who have a greater or lesser degree of skill and/or knowledge about these activities. You will also discover that some people are more involved in making things "happen"; that is, they spend time and energy working to make the Society a more fun and functional place.
