The Society for Creative Anachronism

The Shire of Anglespur

Welcome, traveler, to the Current Middle Ages!

Located in Troy NY the Shire of Anglespur is a chapter of the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA) that encompasses Rensselaer county in eastern New York.

The SCA is a non-profit, educational organization that studies and attempts to re-create pre-1600 AD Western Civilization. The events are participatory and members selectively recreate medieval culture, choosing the elements that interest them. Our shire is full of kind gentles who study everything from fighting, armoring, costuming, heraldry, calligraphy, brewing and music just to name a few. Our group is always eager for new members to teach, to learn from and to feast with.

If you would like to become involved, or are looking for more information about who we are and what we do, please contact our newcomer's contact, called the chatelaine (listed on the contacts page) or come to one of our activity practices (listed on the events page).


  • The next Shire meeting will be on Sunday, Dec 3, 2017, from 6:30 to 8 pm, in the RPI Armory basement (where fight practice is held).

  • The Anglespur/Concordia Yule Potluck will be on January 6th from 2 PM to 10 PM. The location is being confirmed.
