Welcome to Owlsherst, a Shire of the
East Kingdom of the Society for Creative Anachronism,
located in York County, Pennsylvania. We are an
active and growing shire within the Southern Region of the East
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,
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.
These meetings usually take place at 7:00 p.m. on the 4th Tuesday of each month, at
Hayshire United Church of Christ. It is located at 100 Haybrook Drive York, PA 17402.
It would be wise to contact our Chatelaine, Mistress Linette, before
coming to your first meeting just to confirm the date and place.
