What is the SCA

195

Oops, it did not occur to me that I should make sure all you gentle readers knew what the SCA or Society for Creative Anachronism is. Here is a definition from the SCA web site which I recommend perusing if you are at all interested in period reenactment:

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 18 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 may feature tournaments, arts exhibits, classes, workshops, dancing, feasts, and more. Our “royalty” hold courts at which they recognize and honor members for their contributions to the group.

Please note that, while I have definitely met others going to events who really really love the garb, SCA events tend to be all ages, so don’t behave in a way which would traumatize those not yet of age.
