Panther Vale is a branch of the Society for Creative Anachronism located in the Northeast quadrant of Vermont. We are devoted to bringing the Middle Ages to life, both for the enjoyment of those of us who enjoy historical re-creation and role-play, and for the children in the many elementary schools where we do demonstrations of the skills practiced throughout the medieval period. We invite any and all with an interest in medieval history to join us in our play and in our dream.


Shire News

Lost Tip XII (12)

It is the autumn of 1066 on the island of England and we all know what that means...

King Harold has called all good Saxons and his Welsh allies to come to the defense of his lands from the Norman Pretender, Duke William of Normandy. The fyrd has been called north to Stamford Bridge to push back Harold Hardrada and his Northmen leaving the south coast of England open to invasion from Normandy.

Lost Tip has moved this year as we have lost the Goodrich Castle (possibly to the Norman's). We still need to defend the Southern coast, and will gather at the Caledonia Forest and Stream Club just north of St. Johnsbury (I-91 exit 22) in September to practice.

This is a FIVE SHIRES event and the Five Shires Archery Champion will be awarded here.

The Shire of Panther Vale will be holding a number of demonstrations and displays of the activities of the Society for Creative Anachronism through out the Shire during the summer months. Youth Combat, Heavy List Fighting, Arts and Sciences, Bardic Arts, Thrown Weapons, and Archery will all be included among the activities that will be on display. Usually there will be an opportunity for children in attendance to try on some chain mail, to play medieval games, and to make a small blunt arrow. Adults will be able to enjoy talking with knowledgeable artisans about such medieval crafts as cloisonné, naalbinding, illumination, brewing, cooking, silk painting, embroidery and other needle arts, as well as about the mission and purposes of the Society. No demonstrations are presently scheduled.  However,  demonstrations are expected to be scheduled in the near future. Please come and join us!
