What is the SCA?
The Society for Creative Anachronism, or SCA, is a legally chartered, non-profit society whose aims are:
Most of the SCA's activities take place within a social structure modeled and adapted on that of the Western European middle ages. This allows participants to immerse themselves in the culture, arts, crafts, sciences, traditions, literature and lifestyles of the period.
The SCA defines its scope as pre-17th century, meaning that individuals recreate all historical periods up to the year 1600 AD. In the SCA most of the world can be a source for personal inspiration, research and reenactment. Many members focus on the Middle East or Far East, though the core of the SCA focuses on Western Europe.
The Society Seneschal has a collection of information for newcomers on its Newcomer Information page. Below are a few links from this page, we believe to be the most useful.
