Southern Crusades VIII

The Barony of Tir Ysgithr and the Barony March of Mons Tonitrus, the two Great Baronies guarding the southern regions of the Kingdom of Atenveldt, are proud to sponsor SOUTHERN CRUSADES VIII – HEROES OF THE CRUSADES. This 8th annual gathering of warriors, archers, rapier fighters, merchants, dancers, bards, and those interested in things Medieval, combines the most Glorious activities offered by the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA), a not-for-profit educational organization that studies western European history by recreating the "best" pastimes and crafts of the Middle Ages.

We invite you to explore the menu of activities planned for the event, and then put aside the stresses of the modern world, and join us in November. CELEBRATE THE HERO IN ALL OF US!!
