Who we are.
We are members for the Society for Creative Anachronisms which endeavours to re-enact the best parts of medieval history from the dark ages through to the 16th century. The geographical region of Australia and New Zealand is referred to as the Kingdom of Lochac. Within the kingdom there are smaller groups called Barony's which cover geographical regions, there are also smaller groups again which are referred to as shires, cantons and colleges which are located at major universities within Australia and New Zealand. Should you wish to find out which group you logically fall into then you can go to this page. Which lists all the groups and contacts for those groups as well as a postcode search facility.
Geographically we are located in NSW Australia. Our lands spread from North of the Hawkesbury River to the Queensland Border. The eastern seaboard covers our eastern flanks and we stretch out towards Armidale in the West. Most of the Baronial activities are focused around Newcastle NSW however demo's occur up at Glouster and down towards the central coast on a yearly basis.

What we are known for.
Mordenvale has traditionally been a fighting Barony with an emphasis on Heavy Fighting. Heavy fighting encompasses full speed fighting with swords, axes, maces, pole weapons, shields and obviously armour. To make sure we do not die we use weapons made from Rattan which is solid core bamboo. It has a similar weight ratio to steel so one can make a weapon that would handle similar to its historical version. There are also armour standards in place so that major injuries can be mitigated. We also practice archery which is used in combat with special arrows as well as traditional target archery.
Of late however things have been changing. Arts and Sciences have been developing with in the Barony. Arts and Sciences studied include embroidery, sewing, costuming, illumination, calligraphy, dancing and the study of how things were done during particular time periods.
So in this time of change we are looking to embrace all aspects of the SCA. Should you have interest any anything medieval please by all means get in contact with us or come along to one of our Sunday Gatherings. We are all friendly people so approach us and ask your questions or let your expressions of interest be known. If the person you ask is unable to help chances are they will know someone who can and be able to point them in your direction.
