The Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA) is an international not-for-profit educational organization that is dedicated to the research and recreation of pre-17th century European History, with a particular focus on its practical applications in arts and sciences, including costuming, cooking, martial arts, dance, calligraphy and illumination, metalwork, archery and music (to name but a few!).
Gleann Abhann is one of nineteen kingdoms throughout the world. Our territories include: Louisiana, Mississippi, extreme western Tennessee, and most of Arkansas. Find a Local Group near you. Or visit the SCA website for more information.

If you have not already noticed, we have just updated to a new online library. This new library offers more features and a better interface than the one we have been using. With this new system, I also want to introduce our new Librarian, Lady Sarra Mary Heryngton. She is a deputy to the Kingdom Webminister and will be handling the management of our online documentation henceforth. With more and more people turning to our digital presence for information, this has become a very important part of our online goals. So from now on, if you need a document updated in the Library, send your files to ten.n1394407041nahba1394407041nnael1394407041g@yra1394407041bil1394407041 and Lady Sarra will be there to assist.
When submitting an event via the online form, you will notice a new check-box for creating a Facebook event as well. Checking this box will notify the Social Media Deputy to create an event on the Kingdom’s Facebook page that can then be shared. Remember, this does not take the place of having events published in the Ambassador or in the online Kingdom Calendar, but rather this supplements it since we realize many people schedule things around their Facebook calendar.
And for you Google+ people out there, we have something for you as well. If you look at the events column on the right, you will see a button to add the Kingdom Calendar to you Google Calendar. This will add a new calendar with the Kingdom’s events that you can toggle on and off. Since this creates a subscription, new events will automatically be added and indexed in your Google Calendar.
If your group is hosting an event and you would like to get the event posted in the Ambassador and the online calendar, just go to the Event Submission Form in the Events & Calendar menu and fill it out. That’s it! No more sending emails to multiple people…no more wondering what information you should send. Submitting the form sends the information to all that need it to publish your event both in print and on this site.
