Welcome to the Barony of Elfsea

The Barony of Elfsea is part of the Kingdom of Ansteorra (Texas and Oklahoma) in the Society for Creative Anachronism, Inc. (SCA). We are primarily based in Fort Worth. 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. These sports include Chivalric, Rapier, and Archery. More information can be found on their respective pages.

Most events have Childrens' Activities, food, displays of arts, and opportunities to show noble courtesies to each other.

Stop by at any of our local meetings - Arts and Sciences, Socials, Fighter Practices. We look forward to meeting you.

This past saturday was another amazing day in Elfsea (with help from our Canton populace!). We are so proud to be Baron and Baroness of such great groups of caring, hardworking, wonderful people. We had 17 volunteers go to the Arlington Library for our annual demo. This demo has become a favorite of Gerhart and I. Thank you, Aeryn for coordinating this for the past 6 years, and Don Alaric for the 6 years prior to that. Thank you Aoife for stepping up, not only as Deputy Seneschal, but now the demo coordinator. We look forward to another amazing demo next year.

Thank you Diana Warner and Franklin for providing a great craft for the kids to do. They waved their "banners" proudly!! it was a perfect activity for them!

Thank you to Aaliz, Al Aeryn, Vivianne, Aurelia, Heather Clark Nice,Elizabeth MarshallKayla Jade Foster and Denise Oberlin for displaying your arts, and allowing everyone to touch, and work on them!
