Welcome all to the Shire of Rio de Las Animas!
The Shire of Rio de las Animas is a chapter of the Society for Creative Anachronism, Inc (SCA) located in the southwest corner of Colorado. The SCA is a non-profit organization devoted to researching and recreating the Middle Ages in the present. Some members concentrate on the study of the European Middle Ages and Renaissance Eras, with many members working to recreate the arts and skills of these eras including crafting, performance, and martial skills. Other members concentrate on the study of the Middle East and Asian Cultures, with many members working to recreate the arts and skills of their chosen areas and also explore the interaction between Europe and Asia during the periods under study. Come join us for activities including archery, armored combat, equestrian activities, feasting, and more!
