The Barony of Bright Hills comprises the Lands Modernly Known as Baltimore City and the counties of Baltimore, Cecil, Carroll, and Harford, it is the oldest of the two northern-most baronies in the KINGDOM OF ATLANTIA.
Welcome to the Current Middle Ages! The Barony of Bright Hills is a branch of the Society for Creative Anachronism, Inc. (SCA). The SCA is a nonprofit, international educational organization dedicated to the study and re-creation of life in the Middle Ages and Renaissance. For over four decades members and groups in the SCA have held tournaments, festivals, classes, and feasts. Unlike Renaissance Festivals, every person at an SCA event is part of the re-creation: there is no audience. We all dress in (or make an attempt to dress in) pre-1600s style clothing (garb) and try to act as if we are in the time period. While our focus is mostly on Europe prior to the 1600s, we also include all cultures that had contact with Europe such as Asia, Africa, and even the Americas at the very end of period.
Within the Barony, our Baron and Baroness, His Excellency Master Godai Katsunaga and Her Excellency Baroness Wanda Ostojowna, are the representatives of the Crown of Atlantia. Their Excellencies and the Officers of the Barony oversee the many activities, events, and services that the Barony provides for the populace. The Yeoman is the baronial newsletter and is available online. The Office of the Chatelaine provides information to newcomers and helps individuals interested in the SCA get involved with the Barony.
The Barony holds practices/meetings twice monthly, as well as several major events or festivals throughout the year. For more information contact the Seneschal, Lady Freydis Sjona; the Chatelaine, Maestra Barbara Giumaria diRoberto or any of the Baronial Officers. More event details are available on our official Google calendar.
The Yeoman is the monthly Baronial Newsletter and has been updated to the latest release.
