The SCA 50 Year Celebration has begun in the Barony of Sternfeld, Middle Kingdom!
Mistress Hilderun Hugelmann, Baroness of the Debatable Lands, is there and sends us photos of the SCA History display. Each kingdom has a display area with items from banners and crowns to clothing and armor. Let’s begin at the beginning…
The slideshow below has photos of the historic displays of each participating kingdom.
There is also a display of historical scrolls. Here are the ones sent by Æthelmearc.
Various artisans have made works in celebration of the SCA’s 50th anniversary. Perhaps the most impressive is an embroidered history of the entire Society in the style of the Bayeux Tapestry, created by Lady Jadwiga Wlodzislawska of the Middle Kingdom. Years in the making, the completed tapestry is on display at the SCA 50 Year event in the photo below, or you can get an up close look at the tapestry on Lady Jadwiga’s website.
Other artisans have also rendered SCA history in beautiful ways, as shown in the photos below.
Check back over the coming week for more news from the SCA 50 Year Celebration!

The embroidered family tree tapestry was created for the 30th Year Celebration by the Barony of Adiantum, with participation by members of the Principality of the Summits, Kingdom of An Tir.
It was hand-embroidered using hand-spun wool (which was also hand-dyed using period dyes). The hand-woven bands at the top and bottom state that it was from Adiantum and the tapestry is “Dry Clean Only”–in Latin.
It was presented by the then-Baron & Baroness of Adiantum to the Kingdom of the West during 3YC.
