What is the SCA?

The Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA) is a non-profit, educational group that re-creates the Western European Middle Ages and Asia from 600 A.D. – 1600 A.D. We say “re-create” because instead of re-enacting specific historical events, we choose aspects of pre-1600 life. Members also re-create through the use of a “persona”, a character who could have lived in period.

​     People in the SCA study and re-create martial activities including: armored combat, fencing, archery, siege weapons and more! Our artisans research, create and teach music, poetry, cooking, singing, dancing, metal-smithing, tailoring, armoring, etc. Through the hard work of dozens and even hundreds of volunteers, we host events all over the country every weekend.

The SCA  encompasses all of the “Knowne World”, twenty Kingdoms across the globe. The Kingdom of Atlantia encompasses all of Maryland, the District of Columbia, North Carolina, South Carolina, most of Virginia and a small portion of Georgia. Atlantia is in turn divided into a number of local groups: Baronies, Shires, Cantons and Colleges.

Our Canton is located in the counties of Berkley, Charleston and Dorchester, and is a smaller group within the Barony of Hidden Mountain, an area that includes all lands east of I-95 in the State of South Carolina.  We have members of all ages, from our youngest members who were born in the last year to our most distinguished members who have been with Tear Seas Shore from the beginning.  Our interests are as varied as our members.  Please enjoy our website as it touches on just some of the many interests of our wonderful group.
