The Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA) is a non-profit, international historical organization dedicated to the study and re-creation of the best aspects of the Middle Ages and Renaissance. In addition to the arts, culture and combat, the Society also encourages the ideals of the Age of Chivalry, those virtues of honour, courtesy, nobility and graciousness.
The March of St. Martin claims as its territory Lambton County on the western edge of Southern Ontario. It is a part of the Kingdom of Ealdormere, a region comprising most of Ontario, Canada. We are bordered on the west by the Michigan region, and the north by Lake Huron. To the east are our neighbours in the shire of Trinovantia Nova (London, Ontario) and the Barony of Ramshaven. The counties to the south are as yet undeveloped. As with other population centres, our group is concentrated in the city of Sarnia. We stand on the border to the Middle Kingdom.
The SCA has been active in Sarnia since 1989; the group was recognized as full-status within the Society in 1995. At this time we have about 20 active members ranging from students to professionals. The March hosts one annual Event, called “Season of the Wolf,” traditionally scheduled in January or February.
As part of the Educational mandate of the Society, the March has provided demonstrations throughout the year for various groups including community organizations, elementary and high schools, Guide and Scout groups and retirement communities. We participate in Hobbyfest each summer with Sarnia Community Services. If a demo would seem an appropriate event for your organization, feel free to drop a note to one of our Officers.
