Hospitaler’s Page Welcome Newcomers

email: hospitaler@ bjornsborg.ansteorra.org

Greetings, and welcome to the Hospitaler page of the Barony of Bjornsborg! The job of the Hospitaler is to welcome and assist people who are interested in learning more about the Society for Creative Anachronism, of which the Barony of Bjornsborg is a part. This work includes helping new members learn about the SCA in general and their local kingdom and group in particular.

The Hospitaler also works to educate and promote the SCA to the local community through activities or events that highlight what we do. These “demos” are good opportunities for potential new members to learn more and talk to members of the group.

WHO ARE WE?
The Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA)  is a nonprofit organization that promotes the study and reenactment of the history, culture and other aspects of medieval and renaissance Europe. As such, elements of fantasy or magic found in other groups or events are not part of what the SCA does. Also, unlike many fairs, festivals or other commercially-oriented events, SCA events are organized by and for the benefit of its members to further this study and reenactment – not to make money. Groups or organizations interested in having the Barony of Bjornsborg participate in an event or activity should contact the Seneschal or Hospitaler for more information. Here are some links about the SCA and what we do:
