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!).

A New Library

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.n1411416965nahba1411416965nnael1411416965g@yra1411416965bil1411416965 and Lady Sarra will be there to assist.

Facebook Events and the Event Calendar

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.
