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.

Who can retain?
Anyone can retain! If you've got free time at an event, Their Excellencies will be very appreciative of your assistance. Plus it's a great way to learn more about what it means to be part of the pageantry of the SCA!
