Who are we?
This is the homepage for the College of Saint Lazarus, a branch of the
"Society for Creative Anachronism" based at Murdoch University in Perth,
Western Australia. The "Vikings" team at the 2011 Pencampwr War. Featuring members of St Lazarus.
We are a club affiliated with the Murdoch Student Guild.
The SCA is a medieval & reniassance counter-culture that sprung up
in Berkley, California, at about the same time as the Hippy Movement.
Its inspired movies, books and was heavily entangled in the formation of
the Ren-Faire phenomenon in the USA.
We create the Middle
Ages.... as they were meant to have been. We enjoy a semi-serious,
semi-mock theatrical pastiche made from a mixture of Hollywood Knightly
romance, Monty Python, and Victorian Pre-Raphellite fantasies.
