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."

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. Information about all things Caer Galen can be found in this collection of pages. So peruse, get inspired, and be welcome!
Their Excellencies of Caer Galen
Calling the mighty populace of Caer Galen!
Many of the baronial officers are in need of deputies. If you have an inclination to support your Barony and its populace, head over to the Officers page. If an office has no deputy listed, contact that officer directly for information regarding being a deputy for that office.
