An Article from the SCA reads:
Memories of the Shire of Darkwell.
I Quote!
The Shire of Darkwell was formerly a local branch of the Society for Creative Anachronism, Inc.
   Society of Creative Anachronism hereafter ("SCA"), a non-profit, educational medieval re-enactment organization with its headquarters in California. It was first established in 1981 (A.S. XVI) and received its Charter from the Kingdom of Caid in early 1982 (A.S. XVI). [Note, as the SCA was officially founded on 1 May 1966, the SCA Calendar, or Anno Societas, runs from 1 May through April 30, thus 1 May 1981 C.E. through 30 April 1982 C.E. equals A.S. XVI (16)]
