Welcome to the Current Middle Ages

Welcome to the Barony of Bjornsborg in the Kingdom of Ansteorra, a local branch of the Society for Creative Anachronism serving the greater San Antonio, Texas metropolitan area.

The SCA is a non-profit educational organization that tries to recreate the culture, arts and heritage – in fact, the very lifestyle – of the Middle ages.

Drinking horns lifted in the firelight. Men-at-arms wearing chain mail. Bards spreading heroic tales. Sound like a strange dream? Perhaps. Or you might have stumbled into a campsite of the Society for Creative Anachronism, Inc.

By developing and becoming a “persona” that could have lived anywhere in the world between 600 AD and 1600 AD, you have the opportunity to learn armoring, calligraphy, spinning, heraldry, medieval fighting techniques, wood carving – just about any of the skills or trades prevalent during the Middle ages. The SCA provides a forum for the creative exchange of the many cultures of a past era. Imagine overhearing an 11th Century Viking discussing longboats with an 8th Century Greek?

Jeg er Bjornen. Bjornen er meg.
