Welcome to the Canton of Porte de l'Eau


We are a branch of the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA), a non-profit historical re-creation society with branches located in all regions of the United States and in many countries worldwide.

 

Our organization is dedicated to researching and re-creating selected aspects of the Middle Ages and Renaissance of Western Europe.  While we're aiming for education and historical accuracy, we also like to have a lot of fun!


Our branch is located in the eastern part of  The Barony of Madrone (Seattle and King County, Washington), within the Kingdom of An Tir.

The Barony of Wyewood is our immediate neighbor to our south, while the Barony of Aquaterra lies to our north.


SCA Today
