The First Party, retrospectively the first event of the SCA, was to
celebrate Diana Paxson, who was graduating with a degree in medieval
history. I suspect they knew very well about medieval history -- they
just didn't care.
<http://history.westkingdom.org/Year1/FirstTournament.htm> has an
account. Apparently the first invention was "SCA time", because it
started over 2 hours late.
