Welcome to the Shire of


Nestled in the heart of the East Kingdom, Nordenhal serves the mundane area known as Ulster County, New York.

We are a friendly shire of the Society for Creative Anachronism based primarily in Kingston, NY. We enjoy re-creating the Middle Ages in all its facets. Our members specialize in many areas including: cooking, sewing, theater, dance, and needle work. We also host a weekly fight practice for those interested in medieval style sword fighting. We are a family friendly group and newcomers are always welcome.

Please check the news and meeting page for our upcoming activities and workshops!
