Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA) at Cal State University Long Beach


About the SCA

The Society for Creative Anachronism (or SCA) is a group dedicated to researching the Middle Ages and the Renaissance and promotes historic learning through hands-on participation. Leadership is drawn from within the group, so everyone takes ownership of their local chapter.

The SCA has three main pillars of study and recreation: Sword Fighting, Arts and Sciences in research and recreation, and Service and Volunteerism for conducting SCA events. You'll find there are people who are interested in all manners of activity within the SCA: making armor, learning sword fighting techniques, sewing clothing, embroidery, textile arts, weaving, spinning, glass blowing, bead-making, leather-working, dance, music, heraldic display and artwork, calligraphy, illumination, pottery, equestrian arts, metal-working, coin-stamping, jewelry -- you name it in history, there is someone researching and recreating it.
