Welcome to the Shire of Glyn Dwfn! Join us to explore the history and cultures of the world as part of the Society for Creative Anachronism.

In modern terms, Glyn Dwfn encompasses Jackson County, Oregon, including the cities of Medford, Ashland, Central Point, Eagle Point, and Shady Cove.

As part of the Knowne World,  Glyn Dwfn guards the southern borders of the Principality of the Summits and the Kingdom of An Tir.

What We Do

The SCA is an international non-profit educational organization, dedicated to the preservation, research and recreation of the crafts, arts, and cultures of the world prior to the 17th century. Unlike a Renaissance Faire, the SCA is participatory – no one is simply a spectator.  Members of the SCA learn about the past by researching period arts, crafts, and traditions and then experience history by recreating it. There are many such crafts and arts you can learn and practice in the Society, including:

  • Armoring
  • Calligraphy & Illumination
  • Ceramics & Pottery
  • Cooking
  • Costuming
  • Dancing
  • Fiber arts (weaving, spinning, etc)
  • Gardening & Herbalism
  • Heraldry
  • Leatherworking
  • Medieval Games & Pastimes
  • Metalworking
  • Music (vocal and instrumental)
  • Needlework & Embroidery
  • Poetry & Theatre
  • Woodworking…

…and many more!
