CAER ANTERTH MAWR!
Regardless of why you're here, we're glad to have you.
Surely there is enough!
In the Barony of Caer Anterth Mawr (CAM), you will surely find more than enough to pique your interests. If it was done in the Middle Ages, chances are that someone somewhere in the SCA is doing it now. And if you're wondering about something else that you don't see someone doing or talking about already, just ask! We might be able to introduce you to someone who has the same or a similar interest.
One of the great joys of the SCA is making friends - locally, regionally, nationally and globally!
Throughout the year CAM hosts events that commonly include tournaments of combat, games, classes, feasts, crafts, and Court -- in which the Baronial Coronet and/or the Kingdom Royalty recognize and reward participants' accomplishments and contributions! While some events are strictly local, casual affairs, other events draw people from around Northshield and even some from other kingdoms of the Known World.
Throughout the week, you can also attend gatherings centered around all kinds of things, including:
Calligraphy & Illumination
Sewing & costuming
Armored or "heavy" combat (real armor, but rattan weapons)
Rapier or fencing practice (real armor and blunted steel weapons)
Youth "boffer" combat practice
We also have a very active student group based at the University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee called Students for Creative Anachronism.
Check our Calendar of Events page for dates, times, and locations for our events, practices and meetings.
