Welcome!

Welcome to the Shire of Coldedernhale!

We are the Society for Creative Anachronisms (SCA) shire that covers all of central South Dakota.  The SCA  is a practical history society, recreating the arts and skills of pre-17th century Europe. While dressed in clothing of the Middle Ages and Renaissance, you can experience tournaments, royal courts, feasts, and dancing. You also have the opportunity to learn and practice ancient arts and skills — calligraphy, cooking, armoring, metalworking, carpentry, and needlework (to name just a few) — within an all-ages social group. The SCA is a great place to make friends and learn new skills. Find out more at http://welcome.sca.org.
