Who We Are


The Barony of Ben Dunfirth is the branch of the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA) that covers Hamilton and Brant County in the Province of Ontario, Canada. Ben Dunfirth is part of the Kingdom of Ealdormere.

Our activities include armoured combat as it would have been practiced in the Middle Ages, Renaissance rapier combat, archery, thrown weapons, Renaissance dancing and music, historical cooking, scribal arts such as calligraphy and illumination, historical costuming, and much more. Anything that would have been done in the Dark Ages, Middle Ages, or Renaissance – barring things like pestilence and torture, of course – can be done in the SCA.

We have weekly meetings and fight practices year-round. No special clothing or equipment is required in order to attend meetings or fight practices.
