About the Shire of Darach:

Darach Shire is a part of the Kingdom of Caid, one of the major “kingdoms” of the SCA. The SCA (or Society for Creative Anachronism) is a non-profit organization dedicated to learning about the medieval time period in our history. We follow research and re-creation of pre-seventeenth century skills, arts, combat, and culture.

The shire hosts up to an average of 1-10 or more meetings, workshops (such as cooking, herbal, textiles, or woodworking), and practices a month, and between 3-5 major events a year.
