The Society of Creative Anachronism
The Shire of Anglespur
Welcome, traveler, to the Current Middle Ages!
Located in Troy NY the Shire of Anglespur is a chapter of the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA) that encompasses Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) and the surrounding county of Rensselaer.
The SCA is a non-profit, educational organization that studies and attempts to re-create pre-1600 AD Western Civilization. The events are participatory and members selectively recreate medieval culture, choosing the elements that interest them. Our shire is full of kind gentles who study everything from fighting, armoring, costuming, heraldry, calligraphy, brewing and music just to name a few. Our group is always eager for new members to teach, to learn from and to feast with.
If you would like to become involved, or are looking for more information about who we are and what we do, please contact the chatelaine (listed on the contacts page) or come to one of our activity practices (listed on the events page).
