Society for Creative Anachronism
Welcome to the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA). Take a trip back in time to the middle ages where we recreate the customs, costumes, and combat of the pre-17th century era. We welcome all newcomers, of diverse ages and backgrounds, to the Society. The Barony of Krae Glas is a chapter of the Society based in the south-east suburbs of Melbourne and West Gippsland. We encompass a broad range of pre-17th century activities, from costuming, cooking, music, dancing, armouring, brewing, calligraphy, woodwork, embroidery, and any of arts and sciences of the middle ages. We recreate weapons and armour, we learn the techniques to use them, and we compete in tournaments. You can take part in many martial activities, from armoured combat, fencing, archery and equestrian. We hold feasts where there is food, dancing, singing and merriment. We strive to conduct ourselves as nobles of the middle ages, therefore the only thing required is that you make an attempt at wearing pre-17th century clothing, and try to avoid the look and feel of the modern world. We also welcome all ranges of authenticity based on your ability, budget, interest and knowledge, ranging from covering over modern items, through to a completely authentic outfit, food and equipment.
