You may have seen them sword fighting in parks or other public areas, but the Society for Creative Anachronisms (SCA) is more than intellectual eccentrics role playing. It is an international organization where people of all walks of life gather at small and large events to recreate the middle ages and actually live it. Typically a newbie begins by researching a medieval field of particular interest and delving into a chosen persona through authentic garb or armour and the appropriate accroutements. For some it is a recreational hobby, but for many it is a lifestyle complete with their own shire, kingdom, land and reigning king and queen.
This portrait was taken during a student collaborative project documenting the SCA! Let's see if this posts! Ahhh!
