Medieval Arts, Skills, History

Nov. 2015- Added Blacksmithing, Whittle tang handle

We are interested in homesteading, medieval reinactment, and traditional skills. As we have time, we will be putting information here about various projects we have undertaken. If you are interested in doing any of these (or similar) projects, we hope this information will be useful, and don't hesitate to contact us if you need more information or anything here is not clear.



Because of our interest in medieval reinactment, we will include information and documentation of how these things were done in pre-industrial times (roughly, before 1600 AD) where possible, and note when we are deviating from historical techniques. However, our main interest is in learning the skills, not necessarily in exactly re-creating historical techniques.
