This blog is meant to showcase my work, process, advancements, and tutorials as well as document experiences in recreating history. Its focus is 14th Century material culture: art, heraldry, clothing and accessories, leatherwork, archery, arms, armor, and more. We learn something new every day, both in finding it in old sources and through living history experiments. Medieval reenactment is not an exact science and will ever be a work in progress. I hope visitors find some use in my writings; whether they be practical, inspirational, or simply entertaining. Thank you for your time!
