Welcome to the Canton of Caer Draeth which is the local group (Canton) of the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA) for Simcoe County. We reside in the Barony of Septentria in the Kingdom of Ealdormere. (The Incipient Canton of Swans Keep merged with the Canton of Caer Draeth effective June 4, 2011).
The SCA is an international organization dedicated to researching and re-creating the arts and skills of pre-17th-century
Within the society there are members who study every aspect of medieval life. We are brewers, archers, calligraphers, heralds, spinners, blacksmiths, costumers, dancers, equestrians, cooks and armoured fighters. We enjoy feasting, embroidery, leatherwork, fencing, beadwork, socializing, live weapons competition, period music, theatre and much more.
If someone did it in the middle ages (circa 600 to 1600), you can bet someone is trying to do it now.
Paid membership is available in the Society but is not required for participation in local meetings, practices or events.
