The guild hall at the Crossroads site.

Crossroads was an Australian Cooperative that was formed with the goal of creating a self-sustaining medieval village. It began in 1991 and the Crossroads site in Yass, near Canberra. A guild hall was its first building, built using medieval construction methods.

The land for Crossroads was sold in the 2010s. The hall was moved and became the home of King Theuderic II and Queen Engelin II, the 36th Crown of Lochac.

It was well known for its dust levels.
