This is a website in perpetual development. WealdLake is a Canton of the Barony of North Woods in the region of Pentamere of the Kingdom of Midrealm of the Society of Creative Anachronism better known as the SCA. (The Canton of WealdLake territory encompasses Livingston County in the state of Michigan, USA.)
The SCA is an international non-profit
volunteer educational organization. The SCA is devoted to the research and
re-creation of pre-seventeenth century skills, arts, combat, culture, and
employing knowledge of history to enrich the lives of participants through
events, demonstrations, and other educational presentations and activities. It concentrates on the European Middle
Ages and Renaissance, and members work to recreate the arts and skills of this era. Some members study the Middle East and explore the interaction between
Europe and Asia during the period under study. The SCA was incorporated in 1968, but recognizes a tournament held in Berkeley, California on May 1, 1966 as its founding date.
An "anachronism" is something that is out of its proper time frame. "Creative Anachronism" takes the best qualities of the Middle Ages and selectively re-creates them in the modern world. Geographically, the SCA covers the globe, with the majority of its members living in the United States or Canada.
The SCA is divided into three major categories: Service, Arts and Sciences and Martial Arts. For more information on these topics, please select Events for service, Arts and Sciences or Martial Arts on the top navigation bar above.
In addition to our own events which include tournaments, feasts, and class sessions on period subjects, we also perform educational demonstrations. For more information on these activities you may visit the Canton Calendar or contact us through the Canton officers' emails.
For further information on our group, contact our Seneschal (Branch President), Lady Odelia of White Waters.
