Welcome to the The Canton of Petrea Thule
Petrea Thule is the branch of the Society for Creative Anachronism for Central Ontario and the Kawartha Highlands and is based in Peterborough, Ontario. We are located in the Barony of Septentria, in the Kingdom of Ealdormere.
The SCA is an international non-profit educational organization dedicated to researching and re–creating pre–17th century European history. Upon these pages you will find information about the SCA, Life in the Current Middle Ages, and about what we do. Medieval combat, archery, clothing, dancing, feasting, and so much more awaits you!
What is the Society of Creative Anachronism? Quite simply, it's lots of things! One of the best ways to find out what we do is to come out to our meetings or practices! The meetings are a great way to find out what is going on in the Canton and how, if you like, can get involved with it. You don't need to be a member to come out either, everyone is welcome. Our practices, for archery and our martial activities (of heavy armoured and rapier combat) are fun for the whole family too.

News and Activities
The Canton meetings are generally on the 2nd and 4th Thursday each month starting at 7:00pm at St. Anne's Elementary School located at 240 Bellvue Street in the north end of Peterborough from September to May. Currently, we are meeting in Library. The meetings run from 7:00pm through 9:00pm and are casual and informal. The entrance to the school parking lot is from Barnardo Avenue. There is a one–way road that goes between Saint Anne's church and the house next to it. SCA memberships (or funny medieval clothing!) are not needed, just come out and spend some time with us!
Armoured combat practices are held, marshalls permitting, on the 1st, 3rd, 5th Thursday each month starting at approximately 7:00pm at St. Anne's Elementary School. During the summer months, we will often hold our combat practices outdoors at parks located in and around Peterborough. Please see the Practices for more specific information.
