The Barony of Bhakail is the branch of the Society for Creative Anachronism serving the greater Philadelphia area. In the SCA, we are the southernmost barony in the East Kingdom.

The SCA is an international organization dedicated to research and education about pre-1600's Europe and the countries that had contact with it. We learn about the Middle Ages by living it—making and wearing medieval clothes, cooking and eating medieval food, learning to fight with swords, shields and armor, and lots more! We encourage you to come find out more about what we do: new friends are always welcome!
