The SCA is the Society for Creative Anachronism, which is a
group dedicated to researching and recreating the Middle Ages.
Many groups meet weekly, and at these meetings we dance, talk, study,
learn, revel, and make plans.
Here is a note from Cathrene Rowell (she lives in Germany).
<< I am a member of the SCA (http://www.sca.org/sca-intro.html).
The SCA is the Society for Creative Anachronism, which is a group
dedicated to researching and recreating the Middle Ages in the present.
The avowed purpose of the SCA is the study and recreation of the
European Middle Ages, its crafts, sciences, arts, traditions, literature,
etc. The SCA "period" is defined to be Western civilization
before 1600 AD, concentrating on the Western European High Middle
Ages. Under the aegis of the SCA we study dance, calligraphy, martial
arts, cooking, metalwork, stained glass, costuming, literature...
well, if they did it, somebody in the SCA does it (Except die of
the Plague!). >>
Here’s a picture of Cathrene as Eleanor de Brereton. She
is at the back of Brereton Hall.
