Good Day and Welcome

Greetings and welcome to the industrious Shire of Sterlynge Vayle - known in the mundane world as Binghamton, New York.  We are a small but active group of the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA).  As quoted from the SCA website: "The SCA is an international organization dedicated to researching and re-creating the arts and skills of pre-17th-century Europe. Our "Known World" consists of 19 kingdoms, with over 30,000 members residing in countries around the world. Participants, dressed in clothing of the Middle Ages and Renaissance, attend events which may feature tournaments, arts exhibits, classes, workshops, dancing, feasts, and more. Our "royalty" hold courts at which they recognize and honor members for their contributions to the group."

If you are interested in history - specifically, if you are interested in what life may have been like had you been born in the middle ages, this may be the place for you.  We host multiple demos, events and gatherings, offer Arts and Sciences in archery, heavy weapons, fencing, calligraphy and illumination, armor making, weaving, knitting, embroidery, soap making, candle making, pottery, brewing, cooking, bardic, clothing construction and research.   We offer loaner gear and garb for those looking to try SCAdian life out for an event or fight practice.  Our Chatelaine is here to help you get started and answer any questions about The Society.

The Shire of Sterlynge Vayle includes Broome, Chenango, Otsego, Delaware and Schoharie counties in New York, as part of the Kingdom of AEthelmearc.

Due to the severe and prolonged winter the planned site for Coronation has been assessed as unusable. Fortunately, through the quick thinking of the autocrat an alternate site has been secured. Coronation will now be held at Trinity Memorial Episcopal Church located at 44Main Street in downtown Binghamton.
This beautiful historic site is capable of supporting all of the activities that were planned for the event, and We are looking forward to a grand and glorious day. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me at: tindal AT faerhaga DOT org or the Autocrat THL Malcolm Fitz Willelm at gerryhough AT yahoo DOT com. Thank you all for your understanding in this matter. Magnus Tindal, Imperator Destinatus AEthelmearc
