The College of St Crispin (a.k.a UoN Medieval Society) is the branch of the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA) at the University of Newcastle within the Barony of Mordenvale. We research and recreate elements of pre-17th century European culture, as well as the cultures they came into contact with, with a primary focus on the Medieval Period and the Renaissance. We cover the scope of pretty much anything that people did before the turn of the 17th century that is considered safe, sane, and legal in today’s society.
Dress like a courtly noble of the middle ages or a savage viking, compete in tournaments and melees of Medieval Armoured Combat (both melee, archery and siege), attend lavish feasts, rekindle ancient skills and craft new works. Be part of a community of a generous and creative persuasion. Learn about the history of humanity in a multitude of ways and forms.
These are the Current Middle Ages. This is the SCA
