The Barony-Marche of the Debatable Lands is a branch of the Society for Creative Anachronism, an international organization dedicated to the study and recreation of the Middle Ages and early Renaissance.
Geographically, the Debatable Lands include greater Pittsburgh and most of southwestern Pennsylvania. The Debatable Lands is the oldest and one of the largest baronies in the Kingdom of Æthelmearc, the region covering western New York, most of Pennsylvania outside the Harrisburg-Philadelphia corridor, and West Virginia.
The Barony-Marche also proudly includes two smaller branches within its borders: the Canton of Steltonwald, covering Beaver County, PA; and the no-longer-incipient College of Cour d'Or (CONGRATULATIONS YINZ GUYS!), representing Pittsburgh-area college students.

- "People first hearing about Pennsic often say, 'So, it’s like a Renaissance fair?' It’s really not. It’s the difference between going to see a hockey game and strapping on a pair of skates..." An excellent article on the most recent Pennsic War can be found here.
The June Officers Meeting will be held in the McKenna Room of the University Center on CMU Campus, starting at 8 pm. Parking is in the Forbes Avenue garage and the room is on the Second Floor.
