The Barony of Dun Carraig


October 30, 2016 1-4PM --- Want to learn how to knit a pouch? How about learning how to finger loop or expand on your tablet weaving skills from the last workshop that Molly taught? There will also be instructors to show you how to knit in the round with double pointed needles!

If you are even slightly interested in learning about these activities, then this is the workshop to attend. Come to the event during the day and then rest up for your Halloween party that night! Speaking of Halloween, there will be yummy goodies to snack on too. Need more information about this event, please contact or see the Calendar

Welcome to the Barony of Dun Carraig. Dun Carraig is the Southern Maryland chapter of the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA), a non-profit educational organization dedicated to hands-on study of the Middle Ages and Renaissance.

We learn about history not just by studying, but also by doing. At our events, we dress in clothing from the time period. At SCA events, you can eat a medieval feast, shoot archery, dance, watch tournaments, listen to songs and stories around a campfire, and take classes about everything from Viking battle tactics to Elizabethan jewelry.

SCA members study and recreate all aspects of our time period (roughly 600 to 1600 C.E.). Members make armor, jewelry, clothing, shoes, pottery, glassware, and weapons. Some study medieval recipes and create sumptuous feasts; some brew beer, mead, and wine. As we like to say, if it was done in our time period, someone, somewhere in the SCA is recreating it. Everything except dying of the plague, that is.

For information about any of our activities or general questions about the SCA, the Chatelaine can be reached by e-mail at (Chatelaine AT DunCarraig DOT net).
