About Us

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. If you are unsure whether or not you are in our area, visit this site.

The Shire of the Shadowlands is a branch of the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA), a 501(c)3 not-for-profit educational organization. We are a “living history” movement, which means we take a hands-on approach to history, engaging in activities that explore the culture, arts, sciences, and skills of ages past. 

The SCA “period” encompasses anything pre-17th century and any lands in contact with Western Europe. We study, teach, and recreate a wide variety of arts, sciences, and skills, many of which you can find under our Guilds and Activities page. You can find our calendar of activities and links to the Facebook and Discord groups on the main page. We look forward to seeing you there!
