Who are we?
The Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA) is a living history organization dedicated to the re-creation of the culture of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. Members of the SCA work to create a “current Middle Ages” by researching and re-creating the dress, weaponry, armor, jewelry, food, and life styles of the period. The Barony of Jararvellir is the local group of the SCA based in Madison, Wisconsin. We are a part of the region known in the SCA as the Kingdom of Northshield.
The Barony hosts armoured combat, rapier combat, archery, and thrown weapons, as well as guilds devoted to instrumental music, needle arts, calligraphy and illumination, armour making, Middle Eastern dance, fletching, both vocal and instrumental music, brewing and vintning, European dance, and many other things. SCA membership is not required to participate in many of these activities. All that’s necessary is your interest.
