A really interesting documentary and three-part series: Medieval Lives Birth, Marriage, Death, looks into how Medieval people dealt and felt about Birth, Marriage and Death, the three great milestones. Historian Helen Castor is a skilled and analytical Historian who brings a human touch to her findings. She even refers heavily on a real Medieval family’s letters and experiences in life, which really brings this documentary depth.

So I have been in a mood to play with quill pens again and have been looking up videos for tips to make mine better. Found this video and a few others. Doesn’t really go into making them, but I thought it was fun to watch anyway. It seems like a fun event to go see!
