Who We Are

The Barony of Ben Dunfirth is the branch of the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA) serving the Hamilton, Brantford, and Burlington area of Ontario, Canada in the Kingdom of Ealdormere.

The SCA is an inclusive community pursuing research and re-creation of pre-seventeenth century skills, arts, combat and culture. The lives of participants are enriched as we gain knowledge of history through activities, demonstrations, and events.

We welcome all people interested in historical re-enactment, trying new crafts and activities, learning about the past, or becoming involved in a family-friendly hobby that has something to offer for all ages.
