This week we’re exploring the world of the SCA-Society for Creative Anachronism. They host multiple events each year, and last weekend they staged a castle siege. We have it on film!
The Society for Creative Anachronism
“The Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA) is an international non-profit volunteer educational organization. The SCA is devoted to the research and re-creation of pre-seventeenth century skills, arts, combat, culture, and employing knowledge of history to enrich the lives of participants through events, demonstrations, and other educational presentations and activities. “- SCA Mission Statement
