Welcome to the Shire of the Shadowlands
Capital of Ansteorra!

Welcome to the Shadowlands, wherein you may step back in time to fight with chivalry, dance with grace, feast with gusto or pursue the divers activities that enriched the Middle Ages and Renaissance.

Shadowlands is the Bryan/College Station, Texas, branch of the international non-profit educational organisation, the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA).

The SCA is dedicated to the research and recreation of pre-17th century European history, with a particular focus on its practical applications in the arts and sciences, including costuming, cooking, martial arts, dance, calligraphy and illumination, metalwork, archery, music and much, much more.
