The Shire of Dernehealde is the Athens County (Athens), Ohio chapter of the Society for Creative Anachronism, Inc. We are centered on the campus of Ohio University. The SCA is an international organization dedicated to researching and re-creating the arts and skills of pre-17th-century predominantly Western Europe. This is accomplished in part by events where members can participate in a variety of activities – from tournaments, arts exhibits, classes, workshops, dancing, feasts, and more. Much of the experimentation and camaraderie is accomplished at our regular weekly meetings.
The following professional video gives a glimpse at the allure the SCA has for so many of us.
Due to the “Laws of the Land”, all SCA activity has been postponed until the global pandemic has ceased. SCA activities will resume when the “shelter in place” edict has been lifted.
Until such time, all members and interested people are urged to follow the instructions and requirements made by local and State authorities.
Stay Safe! Stay Healthy! We look forward to seeing Everyone once the crisis has passed.
