Morning Medieval Miscellany

I'm pulling in the homestretch now on this week (in which every day feels like it runs into extra innings), but I can spare about a half-hour to get a few things into the Miscellany:
This may be the last Miscellany before the weekend. If you're at Dragon*Con, come see me at the Tolkien/Lewis Breakfast Roundtable at 10AM Saturday in the Fairlie Room. Since the content will depend on what the fans spring on us, this could go in any direction!

    Professor Nokes,

    The new Walters Art Museum’s exhibition Bedazzled: 5000 Years of Jewelry, will open on October 19. This exhibition has more than 200 pieces from 3000 B.C. through the early 20th century, considered one of the best collections of jewelry assembled by a private collector in United States. But what you might like to check out are the 14 pieces from the medieval era, including a gold over bronze gemstone, glass, and meerschaum Visigothic eagle called “Eagle Fibula” from Spain, as well as some other objects from East Anglia, Italy, and Constantinople.

    If you would like to know more about the exhibition, go to the Walters’ Press Room at or contact Amy Mannarino at
