CHURCHES

CLOTHING

Get up to speed on what's coming down the runway in, say, the 13th century:

  • Watch the changes of Medieval costume as you follow a chronological tour of medieval fads at Wikipedia...

CRIME & PUNISHMENT

CRUSADES

"God wills it!" was the battle cry from Pope Urban II that began the medieval Crusades - the eight campaigns in the Mideast that erupted in 1095 and only ended in 1270. Manifest destiny and a certain righteous indignation were the bedrocks on which the church based its right to rule the Holy Lands, a hot spot of warring contention that continues even now. Take a look at its origins with a trip back to The Crusades.

  • Take a virtual sample of the food eaten, the costumes worn, and more - at this full blown treatment of the Crusades from Wikipedia and scroll down the page for a rich collection of related resources.

DEATH & BURIAL

  • View info and graphics at The Dance of Death illustrating how the French medieval Dance Macabre was interpreted across centuries and cultures. Life is short...
  • And they're tips and tricks at Medieval Wills to finding your own English medieval relations...
  • Unique, alright, as you'll see at A Unique Memorial to a Learned Lady. In medieval India, memorials to the dead were usually reserved for men alone....

DRAGONS

FOOD

14th CENTURY

Devastating climate changes, famine, the Black Death, massacres, assassinations, beheadings, a peasant revolt. Did we mention pillaging? Welcome to the 14th century...

  • God's curse or the devil's work? It's The Pestilence Tyme.
  • Bone up on the The End of Europe's Middle Ages with this illustrated archeological dig into the surrounding civilization - and political intrigue - out of which arose the mayhem of the 1300's.
