Living pieces of history: SCA History Night at Pennsic

By Sgt. Azrael ben Shemhazai

Hard as it may be to believe, we’re coming up on 40 years since the backyard party at Berkeley May 1, 1966, that marks the founding of the Society for Creative Anachronism. And in that time, just as in the Real Middle Ages, we in the Current Middle Ages have developed an impressive treasure trove of history, stories and adventures. And along with those stories we have our relics — real, physical evidence of days gone by.

Kopper Kettle Closed

Many of those who travel to Pennsic have enjoyed the home cooking at the Kopper Kettle, a dine-in restaurant near Coopers Lake.

Unfortunately, the familiar "Welcome SCA" sign has been replaced with a "Closed for Renovation" sign.

According to New Castle locals, the sign has been up for almost a year. No one is certain if or when the Kopper Kettle will open again. Calls to the Kopper Kettle went unanswered as of Friday.
