Re: 13th Century food & cooking

Thanks for the replies and the websites.The problem I have always found is that when you I put 13th century food into a search bar doesnt come up with much but when I put medieval food there is a lot after our period, very frustrating :cry:

cloth

Hi All,

I am wondering if anyone could tell me if they would have had or used grey cloth in the 13th Century. I'm wanting to know for our living history display. Its for a servants/serf camp cook.


Many Thanks
