Medieval Fightclub have a range of metal and leather care products, from Traitement Royal, which would be of use to all kinds of re-enactors. I tried out the Le:Balm Forever Leather Wax and Wax:On polishing compound. The products were supplied by Medieval Fightclub, but they have not otherwise compensated us for this review.
Excellent analysis of early 14th C English Society based on the illustrations of the Luttrell Psalter.
Much more than the usual references to pastoral life
Mistress Margio of Glen More
Looking for further reading about the Humoural theory? This is an original text by Henry the 8ths Physcian.
Feeling the heat? Getting ready to store the re-enactment clothes
until Autumn rolls around once more? Wondering how on earth
you can wash away the accumulated fragrance from a dozen or
more events out of your woollens, silks and linens?
A book about parchment, ink and illumination.
James Stallard, a top 14th Century Tournament fighter in Australia shares with us his favourite books.
Alex the Potter of Flaming Gargoyles says “It’s great!”
This handy little book is a stroke of genius on the publishers part. A collection
of recipes from Apicius as researched and trialled by the author – who just
happens to be the same as co-authored Apicius – A Critical Review. No
wading through pages of discourse, reviews and examinations of potential
influences – just straight to the recipes.
Want to make the snacks for your average roman barfly at the local Taverna?
Or impress the neighbours with a bang up dinner on a week night but you’re
not really into the larks tongues and dormice? Well neither was the average
Roman citizen – even if they could afford it.
Of all the many translations of Apicius, this is the one I’d save if a fire broke
out. The kernel of this book was Sally’s PhD thesis with judicial editing and
input from Christopher Grogock to make it more readable. It is a beautiful – if
hardcore academic – consolidated translation of the various fragments of
Apicius de re Coquinaria around the world.
