"Weekend Warriors" Battle in Largo Park

Members of the Shire of Marcaster (Tampa Bay area) in the Kingdom of Trimaris gathered recently at Largo Central Park to teach modern folk about life in the Middle Ages. Steve Kornacki of the Tampa Tribune was there to cover the story.

"It sure beats the heck out of golf," said Alidus Faren, the late-15th century Brittany name adopted by a Dunedin man who preferred to be referred to by the medieval name.

The demo consisted mainly of heavy fighting, although representatives of the shire were available to answer questions about the SCA and the medieval world.
