Middle Ages thrives in South Florida

The fighters of Trimaris are tough, as demonstrated by a group from the Barony of Wyvernwoode in Hillsborough County, Florida when they showed off their skills to reporter Joe Polito of the Oracle, a publication of the University of South Florida.

Polito talked about the SCA with members of the group, who explained their hobby: “It’s creating more than re-enacting,” said Chris Murray, who teaches light weapons combat at Sunday practices and is a blacksmith in the Society. “We don’t portray anyone that actually existed. Rather, we try to make it our own by being as we would have been during that time.”
