There are lots of areas of Pre-17th century research that frankly I have little to no interest in studying. Oh, I’m enough of an information hound that I like running across snips and tidbits and enjoy a conversation or two about things I don’t know much if anything about. But I’m not interested in studying them. Or in many cases even really learning how to do it.
But you might be.
I mean come on, who wants to learn about where ingredients come from that are used in making medieval ink or how to make the stuff yourself? Well, I do. And so do many of my regular readers. But we know, we aren’t exactly a large percentage of the population. That’s okay.
And so it is that I share things that I come across that I don’t particularly care much for myself. And if I can somehow help out my fellow pre-17th century geeks with their think that they love, well my work here is accomplished for now.
So along that avenue:
The fine art of making money. Not earning money actually making it. This has some good information about the Yorkist Kings and their money.
There is a lot of stuff out there to read and learn about. Keep an eye out when you’re doing your own research. If you find stuff you aren’t interested in, share it with those who might be. Let us all help each other out.
