Greetings, and welcome!

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


Welcome all!

There's been a recent news article about a group who promote European culture (including doing medieval reeactments) and the possibility that they were promoting white supremacy. 
Although the group condemned such behaviour, it's best to make our position on any similar behaviour clear.
