Making MEaD at Dartmouth

Taylor Campbell, SCA member and the president of MEaD, the Medieval Enthusiasts at Dartmouth, submitted to an interview by a reporter from the Dartmouth Mirror about life as a medieval reenactor.

From the interview, regarding activities in the club and the SCA:

What sort of games?

Sports, fencing and various forms of combat recreation. People in the SCA — that’s the Society for Creative Anachronism, an international society started in Berkeley that now spans the world — do archery and heavy list fighting, which is combat with much heavier weapons like swords, spears and armor, things like that.
