Explore the Current Middle Ages in Austin, TX and the Surrounding Areas

Bryn Gwlad is the Austin, TX chapter of the SCA. The Society for Creative Anachronisms (SCA) is an inclusive community pursuing research and re-creation of pre-seventeenth century skills, arts, combat and culture. The lives of participants are enriched as we gain knowledge of history through activities, demonstrations, and events.

We welcome any and all who are interested in learning more about our crafts, arts, skills, community, and society!


Subscribe to our Baronial Google Calendar for up-to-date activity details!
