Websites

A Commonplace Book
I’ve been involved in medieval recreation since 1975. I contributed to a manual for living history that later grew into the book Daily Life in Chaucer’s England, and have written and illustrated several articles on the medieval tournament. This blog is mostly a platform for my other writing about the Middle Ages, and whatever else moves me: other history, movies, SF, space exploration, contemporary politics and economics. You can find my livejournal feed at Willscommonplac

The Brazen Burgundian
“The goal of this website is to provide a one-stop resource for researching the Valois court of Burgundy. This period in history ranges from 1363 -1477 and spans the Ducal reigns of Philip the Bold, John the Fearless, Philip the Good, and Charles the Bold (Brash).”

Chaucer’s Compangie
“This is a research blog I periodically update as time allows, focusing on Thomas Chaucer and his retinue during the 1415 Agincourt Campaign, serving King Henry V of England.”

Chivalry Today
“Chivalry Today offers a variety of presentations, workshops and activities to introduce chivalry into your education, business and life.

Clothing the Past
“I primarily research the clothing, textiles, and culture of the late-14th-century and early-15th-century in Northern Italy and England. Modernly I am a professional pattern maker with a Bachelor’s in Apparel Design and a Master’s in Costume History. While my first love is absolutely creating all types of clothing, I also love research in all of its forms!”

La Cotte Simple
“I discovered the joy of reverse-engineering medieval clothing in 1998. In some form or another, this passion has persisted and continues to exist digitally as La cotte simple. I started the site in 2003, putting my experience as a technical writer to work for my creative passion.”

Darth Karen Research
“I’m a librarian, a reenactor, a researcher, and occasionally I sit down and write about it.  Mostly, research works best for me when I can share it with friends– that’s where you come in!”

Deventer Burgerscap
“Deventer Burgerscap is a subgroup of the Dutch Living History society ‘Die Landen van Herwaerts Over’. We portray citizens from the Hanseatic city of Deventer in her heydays of the late fourteenth century and have chosen the specific year of 1370 to focus on.

Exploring the Obscure

Fightin’ ’round the World
“The purpose of this blog is to document my experiences for the benefit of anyone wishing to lead such a life, as well as to keep friends and family up to date on my activities and whereabouts.  I also hope to generate interest in my particular brand of knightly pursuits and to serve as a resource for fellow men at arms.”

We are Martial Artists from all walks of life who have dedicated ourselves to participating in medieval martial culture in order to expand our lives.

This blog is dedicated to providing a counternarrative to dominant social, cultural, and political narratives about European history in relation to both white identity and white supremacy as an institutionalized form of oppression.”
