The College of Blessed Herman the Cripple is the student Medieval Club of the University of Adelaide. Officially we are affiliated with the AUU clubs, 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 Tuesday evenings from 6 to 8pm on the maths lawns, where we hold both rapier and heavy (armoured) combat training along with general social time and meetings. For more information please see the dedicated pages for each discipline. We also use Hartley clubs lounge on Saturdays from 12 noon to 5 pm for various arts and sciences activities including, but not limited to, classes, workshops, bardic circles and general hobby work. In addition, through the year we have a mixture of events ranging from full medieval style feasts (in garb) through to simple fun get togethers like beach days or BBQs.
