Welcome to the Shire of Blak Rose! The Shire of Blak Rose is a branch of the Society for Creative Anachronism, consisting of parts of Cumberland, Dauphin, Adams and Perry Counties in PA. Blak Rose is part of the East Kingdom, which stretches from Delaware all the way up to Nova Scotia.
The SCA is an international non-profit educational organization dedicated to the study and recreation of European history between the 7th and 17th Centuries. We research and participate in various activities of the Middle Ages such as archery, cooking, dancing, fiber arts and metalworking. These activities and others are known as Arts and Sciences (or A&S). We also recreate martial activities like Combat Archery, Fencing, Heavy Fighting and Siege Weapons. Our Fighters train and practice in historical fighting styles. Our goal is to represent the past as accurately as possible.
Whatever you are interested in, there is almost certainly someone we can introduce you to, who can teach you what they know in that field. So bring your imagination and join us in the past! We hope you will come and make yourself known to us, either at an event, a Shire meeting, or one of our local gatherings. Please feel free to contact any Officer for information on what's coming up soon and for help getting started in the SCA.
