A hodgepodge is defined by Mirriam-Webster’s dictionary as, “Noun: a heterogeneous mixture : jumble <a hodgepodge of styles>” I prefer to think of it as a confused mixture.
I have a few projects that I’m working on but none of them can be revealed at this time. Hopefully in the next month or so, but possibly never. So I haven’t been posting anything. I love doing my blog too much to let it languish any longer. So I present to you a hodgepodge of medieval resources and “stuff.”
First – A blog that think will be of interest to anyone who likes medieval history.
I am a Medievalist and an artist and hold a BA degree in Medieval Studies from UC Davis. I am working on being a writer, working on art commissions and working on getting into film. I show horses and enjoy reading.
Next I bring to you “The Geese Book”
” One of the most interesting manuscripts of the late Middle Ages is now available online – The Geese Book, a lavishly and whimsically illuminated, two-volume liturgical book, can now be accessed through a project from the Arizona Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies.” via medievalist.com

London’s Medieval Pottery – from the London Museum of Archeology
In case you did not know the “Book of Kells” is digitized and available online for free:
The Libraries of St. Gall and Reichenau:
To put it mildly the manuscripts that came from Reichnau were considered masterful works and were so well known they were commission by Kings and the Pope. I was in Reichenau but on the day the museum was closed so I missed it all.
An online digital repository of manuscript listings. It is searchable in many different ways. This link is the the basic search but you can do a more extensive advanced search merely by clicking on the button for that.
And some pictures for your viewing pleasure. Click on the picture and you will open up a new page and be able to see the picture in much greater clarity.
I hope you have enjoyed this hodgepodge of stuff. More importantly I hope you find some of it useful
