Welcome to Aschehyrst!

Welcome to a land where the arrows fly true… the swords swing, rapiers swirl, and axes fly… artistic hands create jewelry, leatherwork, calligraphy and illuminated pages… talented stitchers create period clothing… cooks convene… nimble feet dance… troubadours, bards and mummers entertain… music fills the air… the mead flows freely… laughter and camaraderie prevail… swallows swoop and sing… and furry beasties burrow.
Welcome to the “Current Middle Ages”.

The Canton of Aschehyrst is an official branch of the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA) — an international non–profit educational organization dedicated to the study and recreation of the European High Middle Ages. The SCA “period” is defined as western civilization from roughly the year 600 to 1600 AD, although we welcome visitors from distant lands who may have traded or had contact with Western Europe during that timeframe.

Geographically, Aschehyrst occupies the westernmost portion of the Barony of Carolingia, within the Kingdom of the East.
