From hoodies and sneakers to armor and swords

Visitors to the first Antioch Invitational in Maple Ridge, British Columbia, were offered a glimpse of the Middle Ages when the local chapter of the Society for Creative Anachronism demonstrated its skills at the Albion Fairgrounds. Reporter Mitch Thompson of the Maple Ridge Times has the story.

The one-day event attracted visitors of all ages, including teens in sneakers and hoodies who ranged around the list field. The group also demonstrated its skills in the arts and sciences.
