Arts & Sciences Resources

Our "Arts & Sciences" are the crafts, skills, and technologies from the time period and cultures that the SCA covers. Participants research, study, and practice these skills and then share their results with others. You will see them in use and on display at our events - the recipes used for a feast, the armor worn in combat, the scrolls presented in Court, and the costumes (garb) we wear, just to name a few.

Photos and details about our activities can be found at the SCA Newcomers' Portal.

Below are links that can aid you in your research. Kingdom-level and local group Ministers of Arts & Sciences can also help provide answers, whether by finding resources or an expert in the field.
