Welcome!




Welcome to the web page of the Shire of Depedene under Wychwood, a branch of the Society for Creative Anachronism in the Principality of Insulae Draconis. We cover the North East to the Northwest, down to Cheshire and are a relatively new branch having formed just last year.
We are proud to have been declared a full Shire at Drachenwald's 20th Anniversary Coronation!


There are many aspects to the SCA: there is the research and practice of Medieval arts, crafts and even sciences (alchemy, medicine, herbalism etc.), the activities such as armoured combat, rapier combat, archery and equestrian sports and the re-creation aspect where we have reigning Kings and Queens, hold Royal courts, tournaments and feasts. In feasts and revels, we partake of authentic medieval recipes for food and drink, enjoy the music of minstrels, and other entertainment such as period drama and dancing; in tournaments, the excitement of combat between individuals and teams of knights, squires and men-at-arms is enjoyed. The largest of SCA events is a War, in which hundreds and even thousands of folk set up a tent city and enjoy a weekend or more of medieval living, with the impressive spectacle of armies of fighters doing battle. Archery, tournaments, feats of sport, competitions, shopping and trading, feasting, reveling and nights around the camp fires are all a part of the SCA experience.
