Medieval Craft Pictures

Post by Laffin Jon Terris »

I didn't know where else to put these, the pictures forum made sense!

There are none of me strangely enough but there are LOTS of original illustrations of medieval craftsmen.

Head over to:

http://homepage.univie.ac.at/rudolf.koc ... m_inh1.htm

and work your way through them!

If anyone else has any good images or links for original pics like these, please share! :lol:

Thanks Jon, I had seen these but I felt like sending one of the house carpenter pics, Zimmerman, to a timber framer mate and it made his day. It featured stuff he had only suspected and filled in a few gaps, so thanks on his behalf.
