The Shire of Brennisteinn Vatn

The Shire of Brennisteinn Vatn is a branch of the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA), an international not-for-profit educational organization devoted to researching and recreating aspects of the Middle Ages and Renaissance.

Located in the Kingdom of Ealdormere (most of Ontario), Brennisteinn Vatn covers a large geographic area, encompassing the cities of North Bay, Sault Ste. Marie and Sudbury as well as surrounding areas. (map) Originally three separate shires (Flaming Sky, Brennisteinn Vatn and Noergate) were merged together on March 1, 2008 with the goal of strengthening the SCA presence in Northern Ontario.

What do we do?
The interests of members are as varied as the aspects of life between 600 AD and 1650AD. Our interests include (but are not limited to): armor construction, armored combat, brewing, calligraphy and illumination, costuming, cooking, fibre arts, dance, music. We practice what we learn at group meetings, taverns, demos and events. Group meetings, taverns and demos are open to the public, events are open as well but an attempt at some form of medieval or renaissance costume is required.
