We are a group studying in Glasgow and other Scottish cities. Our aims are to promote and further the study of European history through the medium of the historical, martial and creative arts. We teach a broad range of disciplines both martially and crafting inclined, as well as educating our members in general about European history, heritage and culture. Both of the senior instructors for the Academy have been involved with martial arts for a number of years and are skilled swordsmen, although we choose to study a wide variety of weapons instead of focusing in depth on a single style of fighting.
The Academy of Historical Arts has recently become a HEMAC organisation.
