Who We Are

The Barony of Ponte Alto is a chapter of the Society for Creative Anachronism based in the inner Virginia suburbs of Washington, DC.  Ponte Alto is part of the Kingdom of Atlantia which stretches from Maryland to South Carolina, plus a little bit of Georgia. Map of Atlantia.

What We Do

The Barony works to re-create parts of the Middle Ages through "hands on" activities such as armored combat, fencing, archery, clothing making, embroidery, and music.

Where We Are

The Barony's official territory covers Fairfax County (except for Centreville and Chantilly), Arlington County, and the cities of Alexandria, Fairfax, and Falls Church, but our activities are open to anyone who is interested.

There must be a minimum of two and a maximum of four candidates. Letters of Intent are sought and should express your desire, reasons you are worthy of consideration and tell the baronial members about your SCA experience. Consider this document your advertisement -- garner your support -- as this document, upon your approval by their Highnesses for consideration by the baronial members, will be posted to the Barony of Ponte Alto's web page, newsletter, and Facebook page. LOIs are due to the seneschal by 30 September 2018; seneschal AT Please consider running.
