Welcome to Owlsherst
Owlsherst, a Shire of the East Kingdom of the Society for Creative Anachronism, is located in York County, Pennsylvania. We are an active and growing shire within the Southern Region of the East Kingdom.
This is your invitation to come join us in the Current Middle Ages! If you’ve ever imagined yourself being part of the Middle Ages where two opposing armies of armor-clad fighters face each other across the field of battle, or where brightly colored pavilions stand with banners flying, or where gentles in rich costumes feast and dance together, then you have come to the right place!
We are an educational organization dedicated to researching, teaching, and recreating the crafts and culture of the Middle Ages. We have regularly scheduled events, demonstrations, workshops, guild meetings and other activities. Authenticity is encouraged, and members put their research into action by practicing arts such as weaving, calligraphy, cooking, heraldry, brewing, armouring and making clothes and jewelry. You can also learn to fight with heavy weapons such as swords and shields, or to fence with foils, epees and rapiers, or to fight with archery and thrown weapons. We also attempt to practice the dream of those lost ideals found in medieval times: Chivalry, Courtesy, and Honor.
If you’re new to the SCA or just visiting from another part of the kingdom, please check out our calendar of events and don’t hesitate to join us!
The members of Owlsherst would love to have you become involved in our shire. You’ll find us to be a very friendly and accepting group of medieval enthusiasts of all ages.
If you live anywhere in or near York County, PA, we invite you to attend our monthly meetings and get to know us.
