The Scriptorium is a site dedicated to all things medieval, from recipes, cutting quills and heraldry through re-enactment groups and suppliers of medieval items.
Through the pages and contacts within The Scriptorium it is hoped that you will find an interest in this fascinating period way beyond the knight and man-at-arms.
I am always keen to assist in homework or other research and will be pleased to help you in this line. Please don't expect me to do your homework for you, however, your research into this period will be rewarding.
