Re: relationships between Herbalists, Apothecary and Alchemists

Hi there, Thanks for the great replies, and useful links. I guess I was wondering primarily about the supply chain (for want of a better phrase). If we said roughly 15th century - who would do the harvesting of the materials - who would do the combination of those materials into the remedy, and who ...

relationships between Herbalists, Apothecary and Alchemists

Hi there I'm trying to make sense of production of medieval remedies and medicines. Presumably they would mostly be bought from an apothecary (or a witch?), but would it have been produced by them? Would a herbalist supply raw materials for medicine production, or would they supply a finished item? ...

Re: Storing medieval dyes

Thanks for the replies. So materials would be taken to the dyer rather than dye being produced and sold?

Storing medieval dyes

Hi,
I've done a lot of research into medieval dyes, but I can't find much on their storage. Were they stored, or were they made and used immediately? If they were stored, what materials and objects would have been used?

Thanks for any help,

Hi, I'm creating a medieval based computer game and I'm currently designing a building that a cloth merchant would use, but I'm struggling to find any detailed references to help fill out the little details, and was hoping someone could point me in the right direction. The big one is how the cloth w...
