Shire of Caer Caledon

Shire Crest

The Shire of Caer Caledon is a society of the University of St Andrews, dedicated to researching and re-enacting various aspects of mediaeval life whilst having all sorts of fun along the way. The name is believed to be derived from the Welsh 'kaer' meaning 'fortress' and 'Caledonia', the Latin name for Scotland. We organise and participate in many different events including feasts, craft workshops, castle-trips, tournaments and fayres. We also host weekly fighting sessions and guild meetings. Members are kept up-to-date with everything that the Shire is doing through e-mail bulletins, Facebook and Twitter, and, of course, this website.

Welcome and welcome back to a new year with the Shire! we're looking forward to seeing you at our many exciting events this semester. Check out our Events page to see what's coming up, and you can like our Facebook page for more details. You can also become friends with our dragon mascot, Sir Richard Hole, who'll make sure you are invited to all of our events!
