The "Ultimate Medieval Glossary"

The awesomely-named Serena Castleton sent me a link to Costume Supercenter's "Ultimate Medieval Glossary." I'm not really sure why it has such a glossary, since many of the terms have nothing to do with costuming.

Academic medievalists won't find anything new there, but it seems like a really great resource for popular medievalists. If you're sometimes confused by the terms you see thrown around, check it out and you might find it helpful.

    That's because the awesomely-named Serena Castleton is probably a spammer. A very polite one, but a spammer nonetheless. She sends emails and leaves comments that begin something like this:

    "Just wanted to provide a little bit of feedback on your page..."

    Then there's the hook: "I thought I might suggest that you add this page to your resource list..."

    ...and the page is some short info page on some commercial website. We received an email at my company from her, and I found your blog after doing a search for her :)
