The theft of relics:
Not medieval, but very relevant for these days:
What to do when the plague is over? How about, erect a column:

Fimbulwinter: prediction or folk-memory?:
The ship "Mary Rose" sunk in 1545. Among the artifacs recovered is some chain mail. Butted brass link chain mail. Yes, I'm serious:
No, a Cathar is not a medical device:
The longbow's effect on England was not limited to the field of battle:
"Spoiler"--the unmounted men at arms were equally important. };-)
T.P. is medieval Who know?
Polo on donkeys? Yep.

"...or enjoy it with a bowl of jam!"
This is almost unbelievably funny/crazy. I applaud! I cheer! I laugh until it hurts! Sheer genius!
"Heat water over high heat in the slow cooker, whisking until dissolved and thick." I wonder why you'd need to dissolve the water, and how long you'd have to whisk it until it was thick. };-)
