Welcome to the Shire of the Shadowlands!

Welcome to the official webpage for the Shire of the Shadowlands in the Kingdom of Ansteorra, located in the area mundanely known as the greater Bryan-College Station area. We are a branch of the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA), 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!

For our COVID policy, see the guidelines at ansteorra.org and sca.org
