The Barony of Ynys Fawr is the Tasmanian branch of a world-wide living history organisation called the Society for Creative Anachronism. As part of the SCA’s Kingdom of Lochac, Ynys Fawr is based primarily in the Hobart area with a smaller group around Launceston.
The SCA is an international non-profit educational organisation dedicated to the research and recreation of history prior to 1600 CE from around the world.
It has a particular focus on practical applications in arts and sciences, including costuming, cooking, martial arts, dance, calligraphy and illumination, metalwork, archery and music. Annual membership is inexpensive, but is not required for participation.
The Barony meets regularly for activities focused on medieval and renaissance arts and sciences and martial arts. It hosts events, usually on weekends, including tournaments, royal courts, feasts, dancing, various classes & workshops, and more. It has a calendar which is updated regularly.
