I found the Rule of Benedict, where you can find interesting details on for example food and clothing.
I found a great resource to one of the medieval classics, Boccaccio’s Decamerone.
Under the headline Merc of the Month, we want to celebrate the genuine soldier, camp follower or generally wretched person. You can be a part of this too; just send us your picture of any unshaved, dirty, snogging, violent, filthy, vomiting, fighting, sleeping, drinking, mangy, low-down rawhide you feel fit in here. We will use your picture as we see fit. Please tell us your name so we can state it when publishing your pic.
The March issue comes a bit early I suppose, but don’t you just love this pair?
I just added a link (in the links section of the page) to a German group called 1347 – Nürnberg im Spätmittelalter. Please visit their page – although they are a bit early for us gunners!
Have a look at the blog In deme jare cristi to read all about it.
I have previously posted a link to the blog Neulakko, and I’m doing it again. Elina tells the tale of her new, cool frilled veil!
Maria and Peter has a blog called In deme jare cristi, where they (sometimes) post articles about medieval stuff. This time Maria posted about her latest weaving project. Read all about it here.
Piotr and Tomek from the fabulous Ringschule Wroclaw show some wrestling from Lignitzer:
Andreas Lignitzer was a wrestling- and fencing teacher of the early 15th century, and he was probably a disciple of the great Johannes Liechtenauer.
With one single exception we have had the feast of Saint Staffan every year since 2007. This December it’s time again; we will perform a mystery play regarding the martyrdom of Saint Stefanus (in Sweden known as Sankt Staffan or Staffan stalledräng), the first martyr. We will also eat tremendous amounts of pastries and sweets, and we will drink loads of hippocras. In short – it will be a blast!
Elina at the excellent blog Neulakko has been thinking about female headdress. I believe she is asking many important questions about the headwear fashion of that age; not much has been said on the details of the issue, except for Isis Sturtewagen’s tremendous work with sources of frilled headwear. Have a look at both these blogs – they are really worth the trouble!
