The SCA: Founded in California in 1966 by Poul Anderson and other SF fans, the anachronists have as their goal the re-living, in costumes, customs, dancing, singing, the arts and fighting, periods of history between 405 and 1650 AD. It was brought to the South by Hank Reinhardt in the 1967. Most of the South falls in the Kingdom of Meridies, but Texas is in Ansteorra, Atlantia covers the mid-Atlantic states and Trimaris is Florida. The SCA now has over 20,000 members worldwide.
