Medieval Monday Index

I have now created over a year’s worth of Medieval Monday posts, can you believe it?! This index is for anyone who might want to glance back at posts they may have forgotten or missed, and as a resource for those doing research of their own. The index should make it easier to find information on specific topics of interest. I will add this post to my menu and keep it up to date as I write new ones each week.

Want to know more on a particular topic, but don’t see it here? Make a suggestion! I’m up for the challenge. 🙂
