In one sentence, the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA), is a world-wide non-profit historical recreation organization. But one sentence is not enough in order to encapsulate the diversity of experiences of all of the people who participate within the SCA.
For over 50 years, the SCA has continued to evolve and change. Those who participate in the SCA find the thrill of battle, the joy of creativity, and the comfort of friendships established as together they explore an ever-evolving understanding of the history of diverse cultures across the globe.
The Society for Creative Anachronism recreates pretty much every aspect of life before the 1600’s CE. Although the majority of participants explore western European history between 600 and 1600 CE, others choose different cultures or earlier time periods.
