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.

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.

Calling all riders

Words from the Caer Galen Coronet

June 2019, AS LIV

Greetings to the great Barony of Caer Galen from your Danshaku and Nagiyda.

May has been all the things. We have had snow and rain, hail and sunshine. We are hoping the snow and hail are now done and the rain says well clear of Fighter practice.

We began the month with Coronation and the retirement of the Metal Duke and Red Duchess.

We welcomed Their Majesties Iohann and Martin, Koenig and Koenigin of these mighty Outlands. The day was full of fun and solemnity. We laughed, we cried, we ate. If you speak to people who were there ask them about the Walker of the Way.

We next had Folkmoot where Master Carrick received a back scroll for his Stag & Chalice. A beautiful embroidered scroll from THL Perrin.

We attended Brewer’s Fest and the Baronial Polling for Unser Hafen’s next Baron and Baroness. Brewer’s Fest was a delight. A relaxing day with fellowship and fun. Many brewed beverages were tasted and Shoshanah even learned how to make barley water! Her Majesty joined the fun of the day, there might even be pictures of a card game with the pot filled with more than just coins! The Baronial polling on Sunday was in the park. While the weather tried to start something the truly bad stuff was kept at bay. Both sets of candidates were worthy of the position. No decision was made that day but we have now learned that our new cousins will be Master Aegean and Lady Miriam.

On Memorial Day weekend we joined the fun of Jocivus. Another fun relaxing day was had.

We celebrated Ubertino’s birthday and welcomed our Baronial Equestrian Champion. The Queen’s “tea” was delightful! Syringes have never been so creatively used!

We extend our Congratulations to our new Equestrian Champion, Mistress Arabella da Siena and her steed Otto.

Thank you to everyone who joined us on our travels this month. If you would like to take a turn on retinue please let ourselves or our head of household, Lord Stig know. We would love to spend time with as many of you as we can.

The summer camping season is upon us. We look forward to seeing you at all the amazing events coming up this season.

As always, if you have ideas for activities or events for the Barony please consider coming to

the Populace meeting to share them. Or, feel free to talk to Nagiyda Shoshanah, Danshaku Hayashi or our Senechal Doña Rowena.

Our Fall/Winter schedule has filled up with many scheduled events. From Caer Galen Defender in August, Crown Tourney in September, a Rossfechten Workshop in November and Midwinter in December the schedule is rather full. Our theme for Midwinter is French, with more details to follow. We are also starting to plan our event schedule for 2020, especially the Spring season for events such as May Day/Children’s Day/demo, Caer Galen Karmic Redistribution, and others. If you are interested in planning, assisting or have ideas for events, please come to the Populace meeting or contact us with your ideas.

In Service to the Dream,

林 הנשוש

Hayashi and Shoshanah
