Nestled in the heart of the East Kingdom, Nordenhal serves the mundane areas known as Ulster, Dutchess, Columbia and Greene Counties, 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 Events page for our upcoming activities and workshops!
What is the SCA?
The Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA) is an international non-profit volunteer educational organization. The SCA is devoted to the research and re-creation of pre-seventeenth century skills, arts, combat, culture, and employing knowledge of history to enrich the lives of participants through events, demonstrations, and other educational presentations and activities.
Members of the SCA study and take part in a variety of activities, including combat, archery, equestrian activities, costuming, cooking, metalwork, woodworking, music, dance, calligraphy, fiber arts, and much more. If it was done in the Middle Ages or Renaissance, odds are you’ll find someone in the SCA interested in recreating it.
