Who We Are, What We Do

The College of Blessed Herman the Cripple is the student Medieval Club of the University of Adelaide. Officially we are affiliated with the Clubs Association as "Adelaide University Society for Creative Anachronism" or AUSCA. Our other affiliation is with the Society for Creative Anachronism, which is an international organisation founded in 1966 in Berkeley, California. The SCA is a mixture of re-enactment, re-creation, and historical role playing, covering the time roughly between 600-1600 C.E.

We run our own events and meetings, but we also work with the Adelaide group (known as the Barony of Innilgard) We have regular get-togethers on campus on Wednesday evenings from 6 to 9pm, where we hold various classes depending on people's interests. Currently we alternate dance and rapier classes on alternate weeks. We also meet informally at lunchtimes on Tuesdays (12ish) in either the Main Hub or the Barr Smith Lawns (depending on how nice the weather is.) Look for the people practicing their juggling, or playing boules on the lawns or cards in the Hub. In addition, through the year we have a mixture of parties, either BBQs at people's houses in regular clothes, or revels where we dress in medieval costume, enjoy movie nights, and twice a year hold a full medieval banquet.
