Students Learn About Medieval Life from Caidans

Craig Tenbroeck of the North County Times attended a recent Medieval Festival at Lincoln Middle School in Vista, California where students took part in A&S activities and watched a siege engine contest.

"It's like bringing medieval times back to life," said 12-year-old Aleyna Williams, who sold ribbon headbands to raise money for a class trip.

SCA members called the four-hour events one of the "highlights of their year."
