More medieval bits’n’pieces

The Elizabeth Chadwick blog  has a new post about medieval seals and how they were made. I found it quite fascinating. I didn’t know, for example,that the higher up you were on the medieval food chain, the bigger your seal was, nor did I know that women had oval-shaped seals of their own(as did ecclesiastics), and the reason for this. Elizabeth Chadwick’s blog often has lots of useful material,and I learn something there each time she puts something up.  But this is a “something” I might be able to weave into my book, in some way.
