- A Corner of Tenth Century Europe discusses a seminar on “The Cult of Edward the Martyr in the Reign of King Æthelred ‘the Unready.’"
- Heavenfield has a post on Holy Week with St. Brendan.
- The Heroic Age has an update with ten new announcements of CfPs, new scholarly resources, etc.
- Quid Plura has a post on King Władysław II Jagiełło, who was King of Poland & Grand Duke of Lithuania back in the days when the Poles and Liths had their joint medieval empire.

- Michael Drout posts his 5th grade play, The Council of Elrond. I'm surprised he didn't get a cease & desist order from Christopher Tolkien's lawyers delivered to his elementary school.
- Dame Eleanor Hull has a Middle English word puzzle she is offering for people to use in their classes.
