Rowany is the abbreviated name for the Barony of Rowany, a group of people in the Sydney Metropolitan and other parts of New South Wales, Australia, who recreate the Medieval Period. The people of Rowany are involved in medieval and renaissance martial arts, period and traditional crafts (including experimental archaeology – working out how something worked by making it), researching the middle ages, or simply socialising in costume at medieval themed events.
Anyone, no matter what age or level of interest, is welcome to come along to our events and gatherings to find out what we are about. We have a regular, casual practice (non-costumed) every Monday night; more details here: Regular Events, or for the full newsletter, Newsletters. You can also find us on Facebook.
The Barony of Rowany are part of an international organisation called the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA). (A brief overview of the activities of the SCA can be found here). Our monthly meeting (called our Senate) meetings can be found here.
We are the oldest of the Baronies of the Kingdom of Lochac, and we celebrated our 30th anniversary in mid 2012. Our Barony also has sub groups, Stowe-on-the-Wowld in Western Sydney; Radburne in Dubbo; and the College of St Ursula at the University of Sydney.

Help wanted: The site is in the process of some significant renovation and we’d like your help! Have a look at the Help Us page for more information. Why would you ADD YOUR INFO to this site? If you have something to say, we’d love to hear from you. In context, most information is important. Doesn’t YOUR information fit a context? Wouldn’t you like to have somewhere for people to find it easily and permanently instead of, say, dropping off the first page of a facebook group? If you are posting SCA info anywhere elsewhere, you know you want people to see it here also? We know this sort of thing wasn’t happening for a while, but that has changed. Find out why here! Running an event? Let us know so we can officially keep people informed. Anything else? Make sure your information is added, details here.
