Introduction and Welcome

Unto the people who read these words, do we, Jean & Guillaine, Baron and Baroness Borealis, send our warmest regards and welcome to the Barony of Borealis.

The Society for Creative Anachronisms is a historical recreation society dedicated to recreating aspects of everyday life in Europe before the 1650’s. Our group, The Barony of Borealis, encompasses the city of Edmonton, Alberta and surrounding lands, and we are part of the Kingdom of Avacal (Alberta, Saskatchewan and the Peace Region area of BC). Avacal is one of the 20 SCA Kingdoms that cover the world.

In our group, we practice martial activities like armoured combat, rapier combat, archery and siege weapons. We practice the arts and sciences of the Middle Ages like blacksmithing, embroidery, cooking, pottery, woodworking and costuming, and these are only a few of the skills that people research and practice locally. We practice the performing arts such as dancing, singing and poetry. We also have our youth activities including youth combat for ages 6 to 16 and classes appropriate for children.

We bring our skills and our interests together in classes, at practices and to events where we celebrate our love of the Middle Ages. Everyone is welcome to come and join in, so we would like to invite you to come to see what we are about.

We look forward to meeting you.
