Re: Mouldy-smelling glasses

Well, presumably you have taken them apart and given each part a good clean, including inside the rims?

Re: Tudor hierarchy - or perhaps just Kentwell

To continue the car analogy, your clothes would also be practical. There's no point having a 2 seater sporty number as your only car if you have 2 kids, a dog and do a lot of camping. There's no point having your clothing only suitable for walking around daintily if you spend the day lifting, carryi...

Re: Tudor hierarchy - or perhaps just Kentwell

I found http://www.tudorgroup.co.uk/articles/social_structure.html a good start. With http://www.historyonthenet.com/Tudors/society.htm giving a better idea of where the church lies in. For more depth you start reading Proper Books. As a newbie, we will be at the bottom of the pile generally so in a...

On that subject, what's the feeling about left handed people writing left-handedly?

Re: hooks and eyes

I find myself amazed at how many people don't keep buttons!
(And they're really good entertainments for small children, once they're past the eating everything stage.)

Re: Medieval Accountancy

I intend to be at the open day(s). I expect the book is in the Bodleian or British Library, just not borrowable. I doubt my local library has it. It's rather /pricey/.

Re: Medieval Accountancy

I shall qualify that to "most of the pictures I have found so far". Guthrie, assuming you are the author of calcinations, and you refer to using the counting cloth at Kentwell in 2011 and "next year" (though I didn't spot you there this year when I was visiting during the day), a...

When it comes to images, this is what I found that had references http://www.math.tamu.edu/~dallen/hollywood/calculus/calculus.htm - a reference to a book by Adam Riese (1492-1559). http://nsm1.nsm.iup.edu/gsstoudt/history/images/margphil.html Margarita Philosophica, Gregor Reisch - 2 column board s...

Re: Medieval Accountancy

Guthrie: thank you for your reply (partly to the blog posting, I see...) Do you think wool stands up better than linen to the usage? I could get some wool to do the job, instead. As for practise, yes, I have been - challenged by my colleagues during breaks. Regarding size, how many jetons across wou...

Re: Medieval Accountancy

I'm planning on making a counting cloth for Tudor times. This is mainly for use teaching how to do sums in a school. I'm a little (vertically) woman, so I reckon in period, I'd be more able to make, carry and use one which is cloth rather than a solid board. I was thinking linen with not-very-black ...
