Brighthelm is an SCA household based in the Kingdom of Fife, Scotland. The SCA (Society for Creative Anachronism) is a worldwide organisation that researches and recreates life in medieval Europe. Our local branch of the SCA is the SCA Shire of Harpelstane. A household is a group of like-minded people, who meet together for both SCA-related activities and social events.
In 2002, Brighthelm published a book called Basic Armouring: A Practical Introduction to Armour Making by Paul Blackwell. You can download a copy for free from our Basic Armouring web site.
