We are a local branch of the Society for Creative Anachronism located in Mercer County, Ohio.
The SCA is an international organization dedicated to researching and re-creating the arts, skills and combat of pre-17th-century Europe.
Our “Known World” consists of 20 kingdoms with over 30,000 paid members. In total, the number of active participants is around 60,000 people world-wide.
Members of the SCA study and take part in a variety of activities, including combat, archery, equestrian activities, costuming, cooking, metalwork, woodworking, music, dance, calligraphy, fiber arts, and much more.
If it was done in the Middle Ages or Renaissance, odds are you’ll find someone in the SCA interested in recreating it.
What makes the SCA different from a Humanities 101 class is the active participation in the learning process.
Getting started in the SCA is easy; and if you're here, you've already begun.
If you've never heard of the SCA and are curious for information, we encourage you to first click any of these links, read about the history, what we do, and then wander our site.
Finally, when you are ready for more, reach out to our Seneschal. Our Seneschal is responsible for making sure you meet the right people and get answers to all of your questions. Visit one of our meetings, and see who we are!
