Greetings, and welcome!

Welcome to the Shire of Darton. Darton is the Wellington, New Zealand, branch of the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA), a world-wide society that recreates the better parts of pre-17th century life.

What sets the SCA apart from other groups? It is the opportunity and encouragement to not just study the theory, but to try the practical skills yourself.

New to the SCA

“I’m new to the SCA – so what’s all this about, then?”

The SCA attempts to recreate various aspects of the Middle Ages and Renaissance.

We do this through research and making medieval and renaissance clothing and equipment. We hold feasts, tournaments, and revels (parties), where we dress in medieval or Renaissance clothing, eat medieval or Renaissance food, and attempt to recreate the feeling of a medieval atmosphere and generally have fun.
