IMPORTANT! If your email is from Hotmail, AOL, Yahoo, or MSN, the baronial email list provider will trashcan your posts as spam. (These providers are notorious for poor security and even worse policing for spammers.) Free, reliable email is available from Gmail, and scads of smaller free providers exist. Sorry, but since this is handled at the list server level there is nothing we can do to change this policy. If you have any question, contact the Webminister.

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 incipient College of Cour d'Or, representing CMU students.
