Welcome to the Shire of Heraldshill
in the northern-most region of the great
Kingdom of Calontir!

Calontir , a branch of The Society for Creative Anachronism, covers the states of Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska, most of Iowa, and the northwest portion of Arkansas.

Heraldshill, our local chapter of the SCA, is based in Mason City, Iowa. Our shire encompasses a nine-county area and includes the communities of Mason City, Osage, Forest City, Charles City, Clear Lake, Hampton, Corwith, Aredale and all points in between. Our neighboring groups in the Kingdom of Calontir are the Shires of La Grande Tente, Deodar and Loch Meadhonach, the Canton of Axed Root, and the Barony of Coeur d'Ennui. Our neighbors in the Kingdom of Northshield are the Shires of Rivenwood Tower, Silfren Mere and Rokeclif, the Barony of Nordskogen, and the Colleges of Norleigh and Tor Aerie.

Our usual meeting site is the community room at Southbridge Mall in Mason City, across from the theater in the hallway that leads to the public bathroom (North end of the mall). For more information, contact our Seneschal. seneschal@heraldshill.org

Outdoor fighter and archery practices have ended for the season. We may get some indoor practices set up. Watch the calendar or contact the fightermarshal@heraldshill.org or the archerymarshal@heraldshill.org.

Educational demonstrations are frequently requested by area schools, libraries, church groups, and other organizations. If you are interested in having us visit your group you may contact the Chatelaine at chatelaine@heraldshill.org.
