Welcome to the Æthelmearc Minister of Arts & Sciences Home Page!

In the SCA, “Arts & Sciences” are the crafts, skills, and technologies from the time period and cultures that the we cover. Participants research, study, and practice these skills and then share their results with others. You will see them in use and on display at our events – the recipes used for a feast, the armor worn in combat, the scrolls presented in court, and the clothing and accessories we wear, just to name a few.
