We are a chapter of the Society for Creative Anachronism, based at the University of Canberra.
The SCA recreates many elements of history before the 17th century, including clothing – which we make ourselves and wear to events; fighting – we do heavy armoured fighting, fencing, and combat archery; cooking, which is delicious; brewing (and drinking); music – including choir singing and medieval musical instruments; and pretty much anything else you can think of: bee-keeping, hair-dressing, wood-carving, gardening, armouring, horse-riding, target archery, and so on. If you want to do it, we can find someone to help you out!
While we are based at the University and do many activities within the university we also participate in activities of the SCA locally, nationally and even potentially internationally. These events include tournaments, feasts, camping, competitions, classes, and wars.
The College holds weekly meetings on campus every Thursday: archery is on Oval 1 starting from 4pm, followed by fencing and heavy practice in front of building 2. Our regular meeting room is 2B2.
Our local Barony, the Barony of Politarchopolis, the Canberra group, also has meetings on Wednesday nights, Friday nights and Sunday afternoons.
