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.
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.
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.
