Welcome to the Shire of Fendrake Marsh. The Shire of Fendrake Marsh is the local branch (Churchill and Lyons Counties, NV) of the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA) (a non-profit educational organization devoted to the study of pre-seventeenth century Western culture). We are located in the Principality of Cynagua within the Kingdom of the West. Geographically, Fendrake Marsh is 60 miles east of the Province of Silver Desert (Reno, Washoe, NV).
Our members come from many walks of life. We share an interest in the history and culture of the Middle Ages and Renaissance and pursue that interest through Experimental Archeology. This is just a fancy way of saying we attempt to duplicate the many Arts and Sciences of hundreds of years ago.
We study combat techniques, arts and crafts, social structures and dress of the period. This include:
- Heavy weapons, Rapier, Archery
- spinning, weaving, dyeing
- tailoring, embroidery
- culinary arts
- carpentry, joinery, carving
- and much more.
We encourage a hands on approach to history. This study starts in the library but moves quickly to the forge, needle and tourney field. This website provides a glimpse into our world and resources for our members.
For more information, you may contact our Chatelaine, Eithne ingen Gille Challíne about getting involved with our fair Shire.
