The Society for Creative Anachronism, or SCA, is a historical society dedicated to researching and recreating the arts, sciences, martial arts, and culture of the middle ages and early renaissance, a period we loosely define as 600 A.D. to 1600 A.D.
What the SCA does is very similar to other re-enactment groups, such as Revolutionary, and Civil War groups, with one main difference. Since we encompass such a large span of history, rather that re-creating specific historical events, we hold our own events that recreate the feel of the middle ages, within our own social and structural context. It's a concept we like to call "the current middle ages."
