The Barony of Vatavia is a regional group within the Kingdom of Calontir. We are members of the Society for Creative Anachronism, better known as the SCA. Vatavia is home to Wichita, Kansas, and the greater surrounding area. We have members from as far away as Peabody, Pratt, and Winfield!
The SCA is an international organization renowned for its dedication towards researching and recreating aspects of the Middle Ages, not as they were, but as we would have liked them to have been. The SCA mostly concentrates on studying European History, but many members have chosen to study the Middle East and explore the interaction between Europe and Asia during this period.
If you are unfamiliar with the Society for Creative Anachronism, check out the Society's Introduction Guide for an explanation about the organization and what it is we do.
If you are already familiar with how we do things, great! Our site provides additional information about the events and people of interest within Vatavia, and you are always welcome to come join us Wednesday evenings at Martinson Avenue Christian Church. We always have something going on - be sure to check out our Interest Groups page for more information and directions to many of our activities!
Please note that you need not be a member to participate in any of our activities. If you have any questions, or would like help getting involved, please visit our Chatelaine page or contact our Chatelaine directly. We'd love to hear from you!
Good populace of Vatavia greetings,
This summer and early fall we have opportunities to share our knowledge and what we do with Exploration Place and The Museum of World Treasures.
This July 27th from 1 pm-4 pm a presentation on “historic games” will be done at Exploration Place. You do not have to be knowledgeable on games to be a part of this demo. Come and learn and play. Then September 21 we return for “Arms, Armor and Archery.” Again this will be from 1 pm-4 pm.
The Museum of World Treasures has invited us to to present hands on items, activities and displays for the opening of their new Royalty exhibit Thursday July 17th from 6 pm–8 pm. August 9th is the Museums customer appreciation day. Their event is from 10 am- 5 pm. Details have yet to be finalized and will probably not include us for the entire time period.
If you are interested in coming to any of these presentations please contact me through the Baronial website or directly.
