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."

Words from the Caer Galen Coronet
July 2019, AS LIV
Greetings to the great Barony of Caer Galen from your Danshaku and Nagiyda.
June brings with it the Summer Solstice and the bright rays of the golden ball shine their longest of the year. This month we went to several events in the Northern Outlands.
Nagiyda Shoshanah attended the Outlands Heralds and Scribes Symposium in Hawks Hallow.and was impressed by the displays of Arts and Sciences, skills, projects and items.
Danshaku Hayashi was honored to be present at the selection of new Dragonspine Champions with feats of valor on the Heavy and Fencing fields, and feats of endurance on the Archery field. The beautiful site was located in a valley with a pleasant breeze and plenty of space for all of the acitivities.
This last week we said farewell to our Cousins in Unser Hafen as Baron Nico and Baroness Saffiya stepped down. In Caer Galen tradition, we presented the new B&B's, Master Aegeon and Lady Miriam with a basket of the golden treasure of Caer Galen, bananas. We hope that this gift will be a fortuitous omen and portend a fruitful relationship with our Cousins to the North.
Next month bring us WAR! in the form of Mountain Battles. Battlemoor is upon us and we hope to see you at the Outlands premier event. If you wish to camp with the Barony, please contact Mistress Asta who is our camp co-ordinator.
As always, the eyes and ears of the Populace cover the Known World. If you see or hear of good deeds done by the populace, please let us know so that they can be properly recognized.
Thank you to everyone who assisted 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.
Our theme for Midwinter is Joan of Arc/Late period 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,
Hayashi and Shoshanah
