Welcome to the Kingdom of Ealdormere
The SCA is many things to many different people. While the SCA is famous for its heavy weapons combat, that is only just a aspect of that we have to offer. Dancing, Cooking, Feasting and Archery are but a small taste of the middle ages.
1. What is the SCA?
Welcome to the SCA, otherwise known as the Society for Creative Anachronism. The SCA is a world-wide medieval interest and re-creation group. The A in SCA stands for anachronism which is an object or person placed outside of its proper time. In effect, members of the SCA are anachronisms as we pursue our interest in all things medieval. The range of history that the Society is interested in is primarily between 600 and 1600 CE (give or take a few years), with an emphasis on Europe.
Members of the Society take on a character or persona of someone who could have existed during a particular time. For example, they may be a Viking from Denmark in 900, a Mongol in 1200, a Scottish highlander in 1310, or just about anything else that can be imagined.
2. What is the Kingdom of Ealdormere.
|The Kingdom is represented by the Trillium and the Wolf.
The Kingdom of Ealdormere, which claims almost all of the Province of Ontario is the only completely Canadian Kingdom in the SCA. Before we became a Kingdom in A.S. XXXII, we were a Principality of the Kingdom of The Middle (which is the U.S. States of Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana, part of Michigan, Illinois and a nip of Iowa, and some of Ontario). We choose our Royalty through a Crown Tournament. Winners of the tournament become Prince and Princess for approximately six months and then become King and Queen for approximately six months. The Crown Tourney is held at the beginning of each new reign. Then it all starts over again. There are two reigns per year in Ealdormere. The Summer reign lasts for five months, and the winter reign lasts for seven.
