Odds and ends

I’ve been saving things to post, some for rather a long time, and I’d like to get them cleaned up and out of my way.

  • Pennsic Fiber Arts Pavilion: For those of you in the SCA, Fiadnata is organizing a pavilion at Flaming Gryphon’s camp in Block W-07 for all of Pennsic. It will be available for all Fiber Artisans to use for gatherings, classes, and general socialization. (Facebook page)
  • Archaeologia Cantiana Online (Kent Archaeological Society).
  • Via Carolyn Priest-Dorman, Ancient
    Monuments Laboratory Reports online. This is a two-step process. First, browse the British National Archives to find a title of interest. The link will tell you that the report is not available online. But don’t despair: Go to google search and in the search box put:

    and the title of the report you’re seeking. The PDF should be the first search result. (You can also assemble the URL using the publication year and index number, but I’m lazy.)

  • More from Carolyn Priest-Dorman: a new blog featuring write-ups of her textile research.
  • From Grace Hatton, a series of photos of a Sami weaver from the Norskfolkemuseum collection. The next link will take you through the series.
  • Via Christina Duffy on Twitter, these images of the seal tag attaching the Great Seal of Henry III to the Magna Carta (1225; BL Add MS 46144).
  • More Sami weaving, this time videos. I obtained the link from Nancy Ayton.
  • Arelate Studio has a new website, and all of Nancy Spies’ books, including Ecclesiastical Pomp and Aristocratic Circumstance, are available as PDFs.
  • There’s a new book on the tablet-woven stole and maniple from Arlon. (I haven’t seen it yet.)

That should keep you busy for a while, until I get the next batch organized, or perhaps even do some real blogging.
