Have you ever dreamed of living in a castle? Do you occasionally have the
desire to run off to Sherwood Forest and join Robin Hood's band of merry men? Do
you yearn for a simpler time when ladies wore rich gowns and lords trained to
fight with sword and shield? Ever wanted to stand at the helm of a Viking Ship?
If you answer yes to any or all of these questions, read on; the Society for Creative Anachronism may just be for you!
The Canton of Distant Shore is a historical re-enactment group located in Pictou and Colchester Counties, Nova Scotia. The local group is part of the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA), an international not-for-profit organization that is dedicated to the study and recreation of the arts and skills of the nobility and upper class societies of pre-17th-century Europe. The society consists of 19 "kingdoms", with over 30,000 members residing in countries around the world. Participants dress in period clothing of different cultures that existed throughout the Middle Ages and attend events that may feature tournaments, arts exhibits, classes, workshops, dancing, feasts, medieval court and more.
