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.

armour - originally meaning little wing, a piece of leather or parchment laced to the shoulder, probably more decorative than protective and usually bearing the arms of the wearer

I hope that you will find this site useful.

Re-enactment has lost one of the greatest. Knowledgable and funny. We will miss him.
