The People's Barony

Welcome to Bryn Madoc

The Barony of Bryn Madoc is part of the Kingdom of Meridies in the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA).

Welcome to the Current Middle Ages!

The Barony of Bryn Madoc is our name for the Athens chapter of the SCA. The Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA) is an international nonprofit organization that re-creates the skills and lifestyles of medieval and Renaissance Europe.

Members range across all ages, and include students, families with small children, as well as those who have been in the SCA for many years. Bryn Madoc inclues Athens, Jefferson, Commerce, Watkinsville, Monroe, Winder, and points in-between.

Members share common interests: sports (armored combat, fencing), archery, cooking, dancing, sewing, music, metalwork, woodwork, and so much more. There is something for everyone!

We host meetings and fighter practices and workshops and weekend-long “events.” At events we dress in “garb,” attend “tournaments,” eat fancy feasts, and sing or dance late into the night. You can find something happening nearly every weekend all over the Southeast.

We’re so happy you came here. We look forward to sharing our hospitality, recreating the Middle Ages as they should have been.

If you need help or have questions, just ask:
