We’re happy to welcome back the Barony of Smoking Rocks, the Southeastern Massachusetts chapter of the International Society for Creative Anachronism. Members recreate the medieval period from the year 600 to 1600. They do this in a myriad of ways from making the clothing and tools that would have been used in period to recreating fighting techniques and dance moves to playing music or making art that medieval cultures would recognize. They’ll be back for a third year and will be showing off their handcrafted armor with mock combat demonstrations!
Ann Carpenter, a member of the Barony of Smoking Rocks, says, ”While dressed in clothing of the Middle Ages and Renaissance, you can experience tournaments, royal courts, feasts, and dancing. You also have the opportunity to learn and practice ancient arts and skills such as calligraphy, cooking, armoring, metalworking, carpentry, and fiber arts (to name just a few!) — within an all-ages social group.”
