To their Anaheim Hills neighbors, the Fellows family must seem straight out of the Middle Ages. Maybe it's the orchestra harp and Irish harp standing in the living room that make them seem a bit old-fashioned. Or maybe it's the living room full of fresh wool for spinning, material for weaving and the loom in the garage--right next to the cars with the vanity plates "HARPY" and "HARP TRK."

E.F. Kitchen, a Venice-based fine arts photographer who works with platinum prints, spent years fascinated by the glint of light off of handmade armor. "It was a purely visual concept," says Kitchen, whose first name is Elizabeth and who loved "the materials, the craftsmanship, the creativity of the designs." But as she got to know one of her craftsmen better, she was exposed to a world of retro-medievalists who are a kind of West Coast equivalent of Civil War reenactors. "Oh, my God," she said to herself when she encountered the Society for Creative Anachronism, which stages historically informed mock battles involving thousands of troops.

The Sunday afternoon quiet is broken by the thwack of sword against shield--as rugged knights and men-at-arms charge one another across the oak-studded lawn in a Ventura park. Their armor flashing in the sun, the teams thrust and parry, gaining and losing ground, until one man neglects his flank and suffers a fatal blow. The warrior flings his weapon aside, staggers and falls with a groan, landing face-down on the greensward (translation: grass). Both armies freeze.

Chivalry is alive and well in the San Fernando Valley--at least this weekend. The world of knights in shining armor, fair ladies and lords strolling arm in arm and banners flying high over pavilions will be re-created Saturday by the Society for Creative Anachronism at Veterans Memorial Park. The Society for Creative Anachronism is a nonprofit educational organization devoted to bringing the Middle Ages and Renaissance to life.
