This is the web site of SCANZ, the New Zealand arm of the Society for Creative Anachronism, an international group dedicated to the research and recreation of pre-1600 medieval and renaissance Europe. SCANZ is the umbrella organisation which provides membership and insurance for SCA branches around the country - you'll find most of the information about what we do on the branch webpages.

There are active SCA groups across New Zealand, running feasts, tournaments and camping events.

A good introduction to what the SCA is and what we do can be found at The Online SCA Demo. If you are an existing member you can go to the membership page to download the latest issue of our newsletter, Pegasus.

Kiwi Living visits the SCA

Chef Mike van de Elzen recently enlisted the help of Shannon Wanty (our very own Vettoria di Giovanni) to cook a Renaissance Italian feast for TVNZ's Kiwi Living show.

All of us who were present can attest that it was an excellent meal and the food tasted as good as it looked!

Thanks to the TV crew for inviting us to be part of the show - it wasn't quite our usual feast experience with cameras everywhere, but it was an interesting and enjoyable experience.
