The Barony of Caerthe is the Denver, Colorado chapter of the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA), a non-profit educational organization devoted to the study of pre-seventeenth century Western culture. We concentrate on the Middle Ages and Renaissance periods of Europe; some members study the Middle East, Asia and other regions that had contact with Europe during this time. The members of the SCA take the best qualities of the time period and recreate them in the modern world.
The SCA is an international organization comprised of over 30,000 subscribing members. The world is divided into geographical regions called Kingdoms, ruled by Kings and Queens who are chosen through armored combat in Crown Tournaments. Caerthe is located in the Kingdom of the Outlands, which includes Wyoming, most of Colorado, New Mexico and the tip of Texas.

Depending on their size, local chapters within kingdoms are known as principalities, baronies, shires, cantons or colleges. The Barony of Caerthe is proud to include several such chapters within its borders: the Canton of Hawks Hollow (Northeast Denver), the Canton of Bloodstone (Southwest Metro Denver) the Canton of Ravenhyrst (East Denver), the College of Scola Metallorum (Colorado School of Mines), and the College of Three Spires (Metro State College of Denver).
