Glenn Linn Shield

    THE SCA 

recent Cascadian



• Welcome To the Shire of Glenn Linn •

Are you a history buff, Role Player or fan of Mythology and Historical Fiction? Have you ever dreamed of fighting in armor, wielding a rapier, throwing a spear or shooting with a bow and arrow? Do you enjoy camping or working with your hands? Do you long for the days when chivalry was not dead? Well, you have come to the right place. We are the Shire of Glenn Linn, a local chapter of the Society of Creative Anachronism, an international historical recreation and educational not for profit organization with tens of thousands of members around the world dedicated to researching and selectively re-creating the best parts of pre-1600 history.

Here in the shire we work to encourage and facilitate those pursuits that help to research and recreate the arts, sciences and cultures of the past. In order to do this, we hold local gatherings throughout the year that include everything from scholarly research to fun, hands on activities and everything in between. In addition, we present what we have learned to the public in the form of demonstrations, classes and lectures, often in conjunction with various schools and not for profit organizations. Finally, we hold events where members can interact and undertake various activities in a setting designed to feel historically immersive (kind of like a Renaissance fair where everyone is a participant).

Of course, we are always happy to welcome new people, so please feel free to stop by any of our activities or contact any of our officers for more information. Most activities are free and all are open to the public. You can even bring friends, family, and loved ones because there is usually something for everyone.

We hope that you find your visit to this website to be informative and useful. To learn more about the Shire, the SCA, our activities and the people that make up Glenn Linn, please feel free to read through our pages using the navigation menu on the left.
