The Canton of Ynys y Gwaun is the branch of the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA) encompassing all of the province of Prince Edward Island.
We are part of the Barony of Ruantallan, which encompasses the provinces of Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island, and is itself part of the Crown Principality of Tir Mara, encompassing the Canadian provinces of the East Kingdom. We also have a Facebook group, Canton of Ynys y Gwaun – PEI, Canada.
The SCA is an international organization dedicated to research and education about pre-1600’s Europe and the countries that had contact with it. We learn about the Middle Ages by living it—making and wearing medieval clothes, cooking and eating medieval food, learning to fight with swords, shields and armor, and lots more! We encourage you to come find out more about what we do: new friends are always welcome!
If you are new to the SCA or are looking to get involved please visit our Newcomers page for some wonderful information and links.
You can also email our Chatelaine (newcomer liaison) for further information.
