The Barony of Elfsea is part of the Kingdom of
(Texas and Oklahoma) in the
Society for Creative Anachronism, Inc. (SCA)
We attempt to create many aspects of the Middle Ages: its chivalry, sciences, arts, and several
of its martial arts. And, like the Middle Ages, we are a family group with things
for all to do.
We create and wear clothing that might have been worn in the period before 1600.
We camp with our friends using tents and equipment that might have been used in
that same period. We research what people knew and what they did and try to reproduce
the goods and skills they had.
We also train in various martial sports. We train in a style prevalent during the
Age of Chivalry, which we call
Chivalric Fighting (External Link)
Additionally we train in the Art of Dueling, prevalent during the 1500's,
which we call Rapier Fighting (External Link)
In Chivalric fighting, we also use longbows, crossbows, and siege engines in large multi-person
melees (External Link)
Additionally, we practice target archery and throwing knives, axes
and spears at targets. We also practice various
Equestrian (External Link)
sports enjoyed in the Middle Ages.
Most events have Childrens' Activities, food, displays of arts, and opportunities
to show noble courtesies to each other.
Last, but certainly not least, we do grand feasts of many courses in various styles
used in the countries of Europe between approximately 700 AD and 1600 AD. Such food
is a joy to the eyes and the stomach.
