The Barony of Iron Mountain is the Birmingham, Alabama chapter of the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA). The SCA is a non-profit educational organization which provides its members with an opportunity to learn about history through active participation. We learn about life in a bygone era through re-creating the best those times had to offer.
We have local meetings and activities, which are run by the group officers, but the primary historical re-creation activities in the SCA are events. We focus on re-creating the atmosphere of a day at a royal tournament, a medieval festival or faire. An event may include tournaments or wars (the SCA’s own sport based on medieval tournament-style combat), craft competitions, classes on topics of interest, Royal Court (where awards are given), dancing, singing, and of course sumptuous candle-lit feasts!
The world, as we know it, is divided into 20 large regions known as Kingdoms. Our group, the Barony of Iron Mountain, is within the borders of the Kingdom of Meridies.(loosely translated in Latin to be “South”)
For general information on the SCA, including membership information, please visit the official SCA website.
