Although Martial activities are perhaps the most visible aspect of SCA life, study of the Arts and Sciences supports every facet of life in the Current Middle Ages. Without them life would be both less colorful and less comfortable. What would happen to the pageantry of court and tournament with out the skills of costumers, musicians, and craftsmen in disciplines like banner making, metalwork, woodwork, calligraphy and illumination? What would the feast be without the culinary arts, dancing or the bardic arts?

Many arts and science activities are scheduled each month in the Barony. We have arts and sciences activities at nearly every social and get-together, and there are Guild meetings and workshops held each month. See the Baronial calendar for more information.
