The COVID-19 global pandemic has created an unparalleled challenge for the administration of the Society for Creative Anachronism. The Board of Directors acknowledges the health and well-being of the membership and participants of the SCA are of utmost importance.
Therefore, pursuant to the SCA Resolution to Suspend In-Person SCA Activity, all in-person activities are effectively suspended through January 31, 2021.
- Full contact, HEAVY COMBAT PRACTICE will resume Sunday, September 27th! Compliance with State mandates will continue,
including the wearing of face masks. Visit our Armored Combat page for the when and where.
- The Shire of Caer Adamant will continue to hold monthly business meetings virtually (refer to our Calendar, Tidings page, and/or our Facebook page for more information).
- We’re in this together. If you feel your Shire-mates may be able to help you with something during the current situation, please contact one of our Officers and we’ll see about figuring out a way to help.
Updates will be posted on this web page, our calendar and Facebook page.
Welcome to the Delaware chapter of the Society for Creative Anachronism,
Are you a history buff? You have come to the right place. We share and encourage your scholarly pursuits and research to recreate the arts, sciences and culture from the past: Cooking, Dance, Crafts, Clothes and more!
Have you ever dreamed of strapping on armor and shield and entering into heavy weapons combat? Wielding a rapier and fencing your way to victory? Target practice with a bow and arrow? Come live the dream!
Do you long for the days when chivalry was not dead? We do, too!
What are you even talking about?
An “anachronism” is a thing out of its proper place in time; and the SCA strives to bring the dreams and ideals of the Middle Ages into the present day by actively recreating aspects of Medieval life. Research and a desire for authenticity help to create the ambiance of Medieval times. The pageantry of costume and armor create a feeling of reality, a feeling of stepping back through time to a simpler age.
What do we do?
We hold regular activities each month, such as social gatherings, classes and workshops. A few times each year, the Shire of Caer Adamant hosts events. Most importantly, everyone is welcome to participate! Be sure to visit our Calendar to find and get information about our latest activities. We also hold a business meeting each month and all are encouraged and welcome to attend to meet and get to know us.
How can I join?
Contact our Chatelaine (newcomer contact) for additional information. Membership in the SCA is open to everyone who has an interest and desire to learn more about the lifestyle and customs of the Middle Ages and Renaissance periods. While membership is not required to attend events, if you do decide to become a member you will receive discounted admission to events and a subscription to the monthly publication of the East Kingdom, The Pikestaff.
