Who we are: We are a bunch of folks in the northern part of San Diego County who enjoy
recreating the European Middle Ages as they should have been. Some of us perform historical research and learn about the
people who lived a thousand years ago and how they were like us and how they were different. Some of us practice crafts that
were vital to life in the Middle Ages such as cooking, blacksmithing,or brewing. Some of us are artists who carry on the
disciplines that resulted in the grand cathedrals such as Westminster Abbey and Chartres and Notre Dame being the masterpieces they are. Some of us concentrate on the arts martial, learning to wield a sword and shield or a longbow, which were necessary in the middle ages to protect society's advances.
Some of us try to do it all!
And then we share it with others by doing and have a great time while we're at it! That's the Society for Creative
Anachronism's (SCA for short) mission.
Where we are:
