The Barony-Marche of the Debatable Lands is a branch of the Society for Creative Anachronism, an international organization dedicated to the study and recreation of the Middle Ages and early Renaissance.
Geographically, the Debatable Lands include greater Pittsburgh and most of southwestern Pennsylvania. 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.
The Barony-Marche also proudly includes two smaller branches within its borders: the Canton of Steltonwald, covering Beaver County, PA; and the College of Cour d'Or, representing Pittsburgh-area college students.
Their Excellencies, Baron Uilliam Mac an tSaoir and Baroness Constance Glyn Dwr, of these Debatable Lands have announced their intention to step down from the Baronial thrones. They have asked the Barony's Seneschal and selection committee to begin seeking heirs so that the four-decades-long continuity of Baronial rule here in the lands of the marche can be preserved.
Upcoming Events and Important News:
- Sun, Jul 12, 2015: Barony Business Meeting
- "People first hearing about Pennsic often say, 'So, it’s like a Renaissance fair?' It’s really not. It’s the difference between going to see a hockey game and strapping on a pair of skates..." An excellent article on the most recent Pennsic War can be found here.
The July business meeting will be on Sunday, July 12th at 1:00 pm, at the Washington Blvd. Martial Activities site. This meeting is also the Nominating Meeting for the upcoming Baronial Elections. See the Election AS 50 page for more information. In addition to the meeting will be the Pre-Pennsic garb swap. Bring your no-longer-wanted garb and other useful objects for others to fill out their Pennsic inventory. Newer members will have first pick, but everybody will have a chance to find something new-to-you. There is no charge, but if you find something, please consider making a donation to the fund raising bucket.
