The Shire of Bordescros is part of the Kingdom of Lochac (Australia and New Zealand), the 19th Laurel Kingdom in the Society for Creative Anachronism‘s Knowne World. Our lands lie south-west of Politarchopolis (ACT), south-east of Strathcorbie (Wagga Wagga NSW) and north of Stormhold (Melbourne VIC) and Kraé Glas (South-East Melbourne VIC).
The Shire covers the area bordered by Holbrook in the north, to Tintaldra in the east, and follows the western side of the Snowy Mountain region to Myrtleford, across to Wangaratta and Shepparton in the south, and as far west as Barmah. Bordescros is centred around Albury-Wodonga on the NSW/Victoria border. We have been present on the Border since October 1998. The area that is ‘Bordescros’ is determined by postcodes, and currently is as follows:
The Society for Creative Anachronism (commonly referred to as the SCA) started as a costume party celebrating May Day for a group of history majors at the University of California, and has grown over the years to become a world-wide social and sporting organisation for people with an interest in the medieval period. Our Society caters to all ages, a very broad range of activities that focus on the period of history up to 1603, and is non-discriminatory.
Social activities include feasts, balls, revels, wars and tournaments. The sporting side includes armoured combat, rapier combat, archery, dancing, and equestrian activities. Those with a scholastic bent are not forgotten, as the Society both welcomes and encourages people to delve into history and reproduce the objects of wonder and beauty, or treatises on how things were done. The Society is family-friendly and truly offers something for everyone, no matter where your interests lie.
