Welcome to the Current Middle Ages
The Barony of Myrgan Wood is the North Saskatchewan branch of the Society for Creative Anachronism. Our territory includes everything north of the South Saskatchewan River including Saskatoon, Humboldt, Prince Albert, Meadow Lake, North Battleford, Rosetown, and various other communities. Myrgan Wood resides in the Kingdom of Avacal.
Myrgan Wood has bardic and period music activies. Several of Avacal's bards live locally and are willing to share their knowledge and talents with the populace. If you are looking for someone to help you learn juggling, or drumming, or playing the recorder, or preparing a Medieval puppet show - feel free to contact our most recent "Bardic Deputy" Lady Seren and she will try to put you in touch with a bard who can help.
The Bardic championship tournament will be held each March at our Skald the Hall event. The first Bardic Champion of Myrgan Wood was chosen on March 4, 2017: Mistress Fabienne l'Accusee.
Arts and Sciences are just what they sound like. The line between what is an "art" and what is a "science" is often blurred, hence one person organizes workshops in both areas, and helps people find others to help them in specific areas of interest.
Greylore Lutes has built hurdy gurdy instruments! Here is a collection of photos and video documenting its creation.
Weldon Grey, of Greylore Lutes is also an expert in other medieval and period instruments, including the lute and early renaissance guitars.
The Avacal Bardic Song book is a collection of material compiled by Kataryna Tkach, intended as a source for learning and a method recording the popular songs of Avacal.
