Many already listed that I've enjoyed like the Sansom series, also Manfredi eg Troy and The Tower-impressive, and slightly older there's 7 Men of Gascony, The Gun and The Black Arrow-old fashioned adventure yarns, all well written. Gullivers Travels is well worth a re-read.

come on Richard III was depressed-lost all his family, lost his kid and wife inside the same year-was in a pit of despair-heard of suicide by Police? Methinks his charge was suicide by Stanley....

diversification into other market sectors? Eg Goth scene? Quite a few reenactors in that, biker events, county fairs, country fetes, game fairs, even kinky fairs-all sorts of different marketing possibilities for small trader. Its not fun I know-summer is dry season for supply teaching.

looks good-an extra mature cheddar-far better than a mere strippling -good cheese should have some age to it and as reenactors tend to like stronger flavours (well most I meet seem to) I think you'll both be on to a winner with that one!

I'm one of those chaps that wants the best that he can possibly get -and if that means paying premium so be it.

actually that cassoulet recipe would work really well as a dried stew thing-different flavour to the normal chilli or curry that everyone is used to- you could start a trend!

Craig York Waites have a 15th cent style trumpet. Do you have a cavalry style trumpet or is it that long state trumpet as used by H Cav? Reason I ask is that the York Waites one is similar to but nowhere near as long as a fanfare trumpet-therefore the range and tone will be considerably different to...

Anyone fancy making a few bits for me, relatively quickly?

Just after a mattress type thing say size of a single futon that I can either fill with said futon or stuff with various 'stuff' (straw, hay, etc), also a bolster (ditto). Out of linen?
If so do PM me :-)
