Welcome to the Current Middle Ages!
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."

Greetings good populace of Caer Galen.
We hope this missive finds you well and happy. Even with winter in full swing we have been busy traveling the northern part of our Kingdom.
In January we traveled to Caerthe 12th Night, Unser Hafen Yule, Plattefordham’s Candlemas, and Aarquelle’s Viking, Vinter, Vunderland. We have seen Caer Galen’s populace along our travels and we delight in seeing so many of you heading to events throughout our Kingdom.
We have returned from Dragonspine for their Candlemas and Investiture of their new Baron and Baroness. We bid a fond farewell to Their Honors Jeanette and Gianni as B&B and welcome our new Cousins, Seamus and Angel to the thrones of Dragonsspine. And then we will hopefully see many of you at Tri-Baronial A&S in the Shire of Windkeep at the beginning of February.
Some of you will be heading south in Mid-February to Estrella War. Those of us who are left at home to tend the fires until you return will await many stories of the honor and bravery of Caer Galen.
We have had words from our Doge. She is still required to remain away from our hearth but she has heard many good things about the deeds of all of you and she expect to acknowledge those deeds very soon.
We are looking for a Deputy Seneschal. If you have ever wondered about this position or would like to be considered please let Dona Rowena Colebrook know.
We are starting A&S nights back up. Lady Livia Agrinali is hosting. If you have projects you would like to work on or something you would like to learn or teach, please let her know.
Over the next few months we will be adding features and articles to the newsletter. If there are items that you would like to see added or changed, please contact the Chronicler, Lady Elisava at Chronicler@CaerGalen.org with your suggestions.
We want to thank you for all you do in making Caer Galen the most exceptional barony in the Known World.
Please remember the Outlands battle cry for Estrella: OUTLANDERS! To which we reply: FIGHT WITH HONOR!
In Service to the Dream,
Hayashi and Shoshanah
