Welcome to the Barony of Hawkwood!
The Barony of Hawkwood is a branch of
the Society for Creative Anachronism
(SCA) in the Western-most portion of North Carolina. The
SCA is a non-profit, educational organization dedicated
to the study and selective re-creation of life in the
Middle Ages. The Barony of Hawkwood is part of the Kingdom
of Atlantia (map shown
below), which encompasses Washington, DC as well as the
states of Maryland, Virginia, North and South South
Carolina, and Augusta, GA.
While participating in the SCA, we strive to recreate the best aspects of the Middle Ages: chivalry, nobility, arts and culture. We do this without having to re-live the worst aspects of the Middle Ages: the plague, poor hygiene, serfdom and torture! Members of the SCA research and adopt medieval-style names that reflect the culture and time period of their chosen persona and participate in as many or as few medieval crafts, arts, sciences, martial activities, etc. that interest them.
SCA events typically feature tournaments, fencing, music and singing, feasting, courts, arts displays, activities for children -- just about anything having to do with the Middle Ages that our members can think to do or recreate!

Hawkwood is one of the youngest baronies in the Kingdom of Atlantia, being formed from the former Canton of Hawkwood of the Barony of Sacred Stone.
