Here I will try to explain why I do re-enactment.
I am a member of the world’s largest medieval history re-enactment
I started with making some simple costumes for me and my daughter.
People who is not so peaceful as me, are fighting in wars or man to man,
-And yes! women too fight...
|The society of SCA|
The interest for history, arts and crafts I share with most of the
members in SCA. At our events we dress medieval and try to live as a medieval
people, we are enjoying
beautifulness and grace of everyone in their costumes, the medieval food,
activity and banquets.
At almost every event there is a royal court (the royalties are royal in
months). Here they give recognitions for achievement and promote the highest
ideal for the SCA, - chivalry.
Once a year a medievalweek is held in the medieval city of Visby on the Island Gotland. Here this summercamp is hosting about 400 members in medieval pavilions and tents.
The spring event in southern of Sweden is called the Doublewars. It is held over more than a week. Here the fighters can exercise and participate in wars and tournaments. Some fenching and artchering is also arranged as well as market and workshops.
Usually the events is during a weekend, and there is a lot of events in Drachenwald over a year, when you can meet the friends and have fun.
My local union
Juneborg have weekly meetings and here we meet for workshops,
lecture,exercise and medieval party. We have a lot of fun so why not join us?
