Speaking of the book, if anyone wants to review Global Perspectives for their journal, let me know and I'll pass your name, etc. on to the publisher.
- The Heroic Age has an update with all sorts of conference announcements and calls for papers.
- Will McLean notices something about Brits thinking all sorts of real people were fictional, and visa-versa -- some of the "correct" answers, particularly the medieval ones, are questionable. By the way, I've been looking online for the complete survey results. Does anyone know where to find them?
- Scribal Terror has a link to a list of popular misconceptions about the Middle Ages. An oldie, but a goodie.
- You too can become Charlemagne!
- More on Mary (the mother of Jesus) from Heavenfield, and her role as a kind of catch-all saint in the Anglo-Saxon period.
- Carl Pyrdum shows us what medieval doctors looked like (by which he means physicians, not the Doctors of the Church).
- Cinerati tells of the new Age of Conan board game. The box says it has 150 pieces -- ha! Someone who has played Axis and Allies, I laugh at your mere 150 pieces!
