Welcome to our Barony!
The Barony-Marche of the Debatable Lands ("BMDL") is a branch of the Society for Creative Anachronism ("SCA"), an international organization dedicated to the study and recreation of the Middle Ages and early Renaissance. The BMDL encompasses Allegheny County, Pennsylvania, including most of the Pittsburgh, PA metropolitan area. The Debatable Lands is the oldest and one of the largest baronies in the Kingdom of Æthelmearc, the region covering western New York, most of Pennsylvania outside the Harrisburg-Philadelphia corridor, and West Virginia.
Policy Update

It is time for policy review. We have made some updates that were necessary to meet with The Society and Kingdom policies. We have suggested adding a few new things to make our Barony more inclusive and removed gendered language. Please take the time to review these proposed changes. We will vote on them at the Business Meeting in December. Click here for more information.
