About The Oak

Mission: To support information sharing within the SCA Arts and Sciences community.

Vision: A central information sharing portal, online, publishing content created by and for the SCA Arts and Sciences community.


The Oak is a newsletter produced by the Arts and Sciences community of the SCA Kingdom of Atlantia. The Kingdom of Atlantia is a region of the international educational organization “The Society for Creative Anachronism”. Please see the Kingdom of Atlantia home page here and the SCA homepage here.

Anything you would like to share in support of the SCA mission of learning about our world before the year 1600 CE is welcome for publication on The Oak. Short articles that simply introduce a concept or long papers that include many citations: all are welcome! The Oak uses  an online WordPress site format that allows for any length of text and inclusion of pictures, links, audio recordings, and videos.

(Due to storage space limitations, videos will need to be hosted on another platform, such as You Tube, Vimeo, etc. Links to your publicly available videos should be used to include videos in your Oak article.)Any time period and geographic location from before 1600 CE is acceptable. We are especially interested in areas, times, and topics that generally receive less attention in the SCA or are harder to display in other venues.
