    SOCIETY FOR CREATIVE ANACHRONISM

    The Society for Creative Anachronism, with over 100,000 members and participants, is the largest reenacting group in the world.

    Our website is www.sca.org, from there you can find which of the 17 kingdoms covers your part of the world (if you PM me, I'll get you in contact with the local guys wherever you are). http://www.sca.org/geography/welcome.html provides the regional breakdown, too.

    We reenact, or recreate, life before 1600 AD. There are no spectators -- everyone is a participant! Therefore, pre-1600 attire is required for everyone.

    There is an event near your house coming up soon, if you are in Europe, Iceland, North America, South Africa, Hawaii, Japan, Korea, Guam, Australia, or New Zealand. www.sca.org has the details or you can get them from me.

    Come on in! The SCA's focus is on fun as well as authenticity. (The exact balance between the two tends to vary from place to place, but everyone is welcome.)

          Well, it doesn't matter really! I don't have the necessary stuff to act a part in a lot of eras but I'm lookin around. I'd prefer WWII (prolly not gonna happen considering my age) but for location the best eras would be Revolutionary or French and Indian Wars.

          But I am very interested in getting into reenacting.

            But I am very interested in getting into reenacting.
            Im only a month past 17 but I do ACW and I am attempting to get into either a German WW2 unit (more likely I own a 98k but the uniform and gear are either hard to find or expensive) or an American Airborne unit (a guy up the street used to do 101 but I don't know if he does, and one of my counselors at school does straight GI.) and even if I find a unit, uniforms are cheap (a little more expensive for airborne though you can get the original brown corcorans from www.military-clothing.com but either way a M1 Garand or a M1A1 Carbine will be expensive. I would love a Garand just to shoot.)
            a place to look though when you get older, find a WW2 unit or just want some collector's type stuff www.atthefront.com is a great place to look.

            The only way I can do American Civil War is that my family did it for the 1st five years of my life and still kept the gear. I have an awesome Confederate impression but we can't find all the union uniforms. (our unit is a dual unit- 8th Louisiana Volunteer Infantry/85th Illinois Volunteer Infantry most of the guys I was with are still there so its like being at home again). My dad's friend was trying to get into the SCA and he did some stuff with it but I don't know how well that went.

            I thought doing a Roman Legionnaire would be awesome too!

                You might want to try the SCA...at your age we can have you in armor with a sword and shield in a month or less, and when you're 18 you can join tournaments and wars...and you can do it as a Roman legionaire with us.

                    I have a question. I have made many trebuchets and ballistics. At these reenactments do they bring field artillery? If so do you think they would need help in construction and operation? I am an engineer by trade and therefore building a trebuchet was fun for me.

                      They don't bring them to every event, but they do bring them to many of them, especially the wars. Our largest war takes place near Pittsburgh in mid-August and there will be some them. I fought in a small battle in Drachenwald (Europe) and the other team fired a catapult at us. It was interesting.

                      They love it. In fact, many kingdoms have artillery companies that work on such things. Helping hands are always welcome, especially experienced ones.

                      Did you build full-sized or reduced scale?

                      If you'd like me to help you find an artillery company in your area, email me at [email protected] and let me know where you are.

                          Women can do whatever they want.

                          We have women fighters (our highest leadership is chosen by combat, and 3 women have done so) and they hold all leadership positions men do -- there is nothing closed to them.

                          In Drachenwald, the kingdom where I live, the Seneschale (the true head, since our Kings are Queens are largely ceremonial) is a woman. The next ranking officer, the herald, will be a woman starting in two weeks.

                          If the women want to be belles of the ball, they can, but they can also do anything else.

                            I'm in Pennsylvenia and am looking to join a unit of some sort.
                            O people, know you have committed great sins and the great ones among you have committed these sins. If you ask proof of my words then I shall tell you: I am the punishment of God. If you hadn't committed these sins I would not be here.

                              Hi Colin,

                              Not sure what part of Pennsylvania you're in, but if you're interested in anything before 1600AD (knights, fencing, Romans, etc.), try the SCA. Websites for PA are:

                              - The Kingdom of Ćthelmearc (western Pennsylvania, western New York, and West Virginia) http://www.aethelmearc.org/
                              - The Kingdom of the East (US: eastern Pennsylvania, eastern New York, Delaware, New Jersey, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine; Canada: Quebec, Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Newfoundland) http://www.eastkingdom.org/

                              If you tell me more specifically where you are, I can get you in touch with a local group.
