Welcome to the Current Middle Ages!



SCA-slide

What's that you say? The "Current Middle Ages?"

You heard right! Caer Galen is a chapter group in the historical recreation organization known as "The Society for Creative Anachronism," or "SCA" for short. The SCA is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to the better qualities, and education, of historical living (i.e. no plague, destitution, or slavery). The SCA focuses from the time of the Roman Empire to the end of Queen Elizabeth I's reign,and encompasses historical Europe, parts of North Africa, and Asia. The SCA is broken into "Kingdoms" across the "Known World." Kingdoms are further organized into "Baronies, Shires,etc."

Caer Galen is a Barony in the Kingdom of the Outlands. We endorse fairness and equability, both within our group and to the public we interact with.

From Their Excellencies of Caer Galen-

Greetings Caer Galen!

As summer comes to a close- We want to thank all of you for coming out and sharing your time and excitement with the Barony and the Kingdom!

There have been a number of highlights this summer: Defender, Battlemoor, Here There Be Dragons, Pennsic, Archery Collegium, and all of the Landsknecht classes in preparation for Caer Galen Midwinter! Even though the seasons are changing, it does not slow down our momentum. We hope to see as many folks as possible out at events and workshops as we move to the winter feast season.

We have a number of individuals who deserve special thanks for works done for the Barony:

-Thank you to Sir Adrien for her patterning class!

-Thank you to Mistress Briatiz for her hat making class!

-Thank you to Master Wolfgang for all of his time as Rapier Marshall and to Sir Michalangelo for stepping into this role!

-Thank you to Master Wolfgang for the completion of the Barony’s new website:

https://www.caergalen.org/

We will be moving into our Winter practice site (Barn A, Boulder County Fairgrounds) starting in September. We will hold a Folkmoot at this first practice in the barn, with Court starting around 7:00pm.

Additionally, there is a brand new equestrian practice starting on September 16th! More information will be available online, but we look forward to this new practice.

We can’t wait to see everyone out as practices continue in preparation for War season! Get your armor and weapons together- the drums will soon sound.

As always, it is an honor to serve you!

Long Live the Outlands! Long Live Caer Galen!
