Barony-Marche of the Debatable Lands
The Barony-Marche of the Debatable Lands is a SCA branch that geographically includes greater Pittsburgh and part of southwestern Pennsylvania. The Debatable Lands is the oldest and largest barony 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 College of Cour d'Or (Pittsburgh-area colleges and universities) and the Canton of Steltonwald (Beaver County, PA).
The Debatable Lands is traditionally considered the "home" group of the Pennsic War between the East and Middle Kingdoms. Geographically, Pennsic is located within the lands of the Shire of Sunderoak, a former canton of the Debatable Lands.
The Debatable Lands is home to more than 250 members, including many Pelicans, Laurels and Knights. It is particularly known for its talented musicians, costumers, scribes, cooks and fencers.
