The Scriptorium

Created and maintained by a long time medieval re-enactor, the Scriptorium is a place where you can find information on many aspects of medieval life.

Here you can find some recipes to create authentic medieval dishes, the meaning of words you may see in history books and, hopefully, answers to some questions you may have.
