Welcome to the Shire of Quintavia!
The Shire of Quintavia is the Central Massachusetts chapter of the Society for Creative Anachronism, Inc. (SCA), a not-for-profit educational organization which studies the Middle Ages by recreating the pastimes and crafts of the period. The Shire is part of the East Kingdom which includes eastern Pennsylvania, eastern New York, Delaware, New Jersey, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine, Quebec, Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Newfoundland.
The SCA is a place where you don’t just watch – you participate! Every person plays a part in creating the the atmosphere and participates in whatever activities and studies they find interesting. For some this means making period clothing. For others it means learning calligraphy, armored combat, fencing, archery, dancing or countless other activities that interest them.
We hold “events” (what we call our gatherings) nearly every weekend. Some events feature tournaments and feasts, while others specialize in learning more about particular crafts. The summer months often feature full weekends of activities. Come join us! We’re happy to help you get started with whatever already interests you, or help you explore and find new interests.
If you are a maker, an athlete, a performer, a researcher, an artist, a cook, an archer, a dancer, a lover of history or simply someone who loves to learn new skills and information – there is something for you in the SCA.
