Members of the Barony-Marche of the Debatable Lands of the Kingdom of Aethelmearc, a branch of the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA) practiced their heavy fighting on Sunday at Highland Park along Washington Boulevard.

The SCA is an international organization dedicated to the study and recreation of the Middle Ages and early Renaissance.
