Today in Medieval History

Poster: Mark Mettler <mettler@bulloch.net>

Greetings my name is Gryffri de Newmarch, and I am from Meridies, the
Shire of Forth Castle.  For more than six months now I have been posting
Today in Medieval History to the Tavern Yard.  I was recently asked to
share this with you too.  I will be glad to, of course with the
blessings of the Merry Rose regulars.  My goal with TiMH has been to
allow each person to be a little more aware of what exactly was
happening in their part of the world, in their time in History.  My
postings go from about 500 AD until 1650, and I generally only post
European History, but sometimes other significant events sneak in.  Of
course if your anxious to learn about a day not yet here, or one past,
you may use my JAVA version on the Southern Creative Anachronist website
at http://www2.gasou.edu/SCA/

And that being said, here's your first official daily edition.  Please
not, I do not post on weekends.
