This bespectacled nun is the cast of a bust or corbel from St. Martin’s church in Salisbury (inv. 32046).
She was likely carved in the 15th century and is wearing one of the earliest types of spectacles from the medieval era, although the first known depiction of these glasses can be seen in paintings by Tomasso da Modena as early as the 1350s; so this nun’s may have been seen as very last century!

The effigy of Eleanor of Castile, Queen of England, at her tomb in Westminster Abbey. After experiencing declining health in the 1280s after giving birth to sixteen children, Queen Eleanor died on 28 November 1290 after a brief battle with an unknown illness. After her death her body was eviscerated and she had three separate burials. Her heart was buried in London at the Blackfriars Dominican priory, beside the body of her son Alphonso. The rest of her organs were buried in Lincoln Cathedral, while her body was laid to rest in Westminster Abbey, each of these burials being marked by an effigy of Eleanor. On the journey from Lincoln to Westminster, Eleanor's body stopped at thirteen locations overnight. King Edward I, bereaved of his wife of thirty six years, ordered a cross to be erected at each of these sites to mark where Eleanor's body had lain. These 'Eleanor Crosses' were a physical manifestation of the king's grief, and reminded passers-by to pray for the queen's soul. #eleanorofcastile #queenofengland #edwardi #westminsterabbey #lincolncathedral #history #history #womenshistory #eleanorcross #womenofhistory #middleages #medieval #medievalhistory #effigy

"The road goes ever on and on"
Durham Cathedral is one of the only intact medieval cathedrals that still exists with construction beginning in 1093. It was built to house the shrine of St. Cuthbert and is his burial place (his tomb has been opened 3 times since its original burial, fun history worth googling) anyway, I couldn't take pics inside but it's massive and breathtaking and beautiful!!! #travel #cathedral #durham #medievalhistory #durhamcathedral #ecclesiasticalarchitecture #italsohasaveryfunharrypotteresquecourtyard

Speaking of the Norman palace, this 900-year-old weathered lion head is the only original stonework left on the outside of the keep. It is the outlet from the King’s wash basin which is in the south wall (shown in our last pic) at balcony level.

Recently starting working on the Medieval lead seal belonging to @mudfacegirl as it's a bit overdue! Cast it in silver yesterday and today I'm cleaning up the casting using a jewellers fret saw. These are invaluable for precise delicate piercing work. Matching up the symmetry between the original artefact and the new one is vital. The intention once finished, is to turn this lead seal into a shiny wearable silver one. #nixmjewllery #nixm #mancave #productivesunday #silversmithing #silversmith #silvercasting #cleaningupcasting #knewconcepts #piercingsaw #jewellerstools #prepwork #metalworker #metaldetector #medievalhistory #centuriesold #medievalseal #detectingfind #wearinghistory #wip #workingwithhands #workinprogress @knew_concepts

Medieval Witch Burning. #21/31.  In Medieval Europe, witch burnings were pretty common.  Sometimes it was the community and church being superstitious or a "healer" being misunderstood, but often it was a very efficient way to seize a widow's land and holdings. Scholars disagree on just how many thousands of people were killed during these witch hunts. There are parts of the world where "witches" are still burned today. For more info, pics and links, go to historybones.com/witchburnings or just hit link in bio.

So my next project that I've embarked upon is to turn this wonderful lead Medieval seal pendant into a wearable silver one. As all us detectorists know, ancient lead is very fragile and brittle, but when found, this artefact was a little bit bent with being buried for centuries. I've been very careful and straightened it out, ready to replicate better. The seal belongs to @mudfacegirl who quite rightly wishes to wear it so best get cracking eh! #newproject #medievalhistory #medievalseal #medievalpendant #ancientfind #metaldetecting #metaldetector #wearablehistory #centuriesold #lostthenfound #treasurehunting #wonderfulfind #oldartefact #canong5x #mancave #darlington #countydurham #silversmith #englishhistory #latininscription #leadtosilver #greatfun #detectingfind #unearthinghistory #buriedhistory

920 years ago today during the First Crusade, the Crusader Army began the Siege of Antioch in Syria, which had been taken from the Byzantine Empire by the Seljuk Turks 13 years prior. It would be another 8 months before the city would be liberated, but not before great hardship would befall the Crusaders. Ending in an iconic battle where the sieging became the besieged. #crusaderhistory #thecrusades #firstcrusade #medievalhistory #syrianhistory #medievaleuropeanhistory #catholichistory #easternorthodoxhistory #muslimhistory #turkishhistory #byzantinehistory #talesofglory #11thcentury #antiochsyria #medievalsieges #historymatters #neareasthistory

Walrus ivory chess piece in the form of a knight battling a dragon, made in England c. 1250. Though parts of this piece are now lost (notably the knight's right arm and weapon), the skill of this three-dimensional carving is evident. Having originated in India, chess was popular throughout Western Europe by c. 1000 AD. The forms of the pieces were adapted to local tastes. Here, the knight embodies chivalric and heroic Christian ideals. It is now in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.⠀

10 of Nooses from an oval shaped deck owned by the Cloisters Museum. Not a divination deck, but so gorgeous and probably one of the only complete deck from the 16th Century. It's also quiet original since the suits are inspired by hunting elements, the nooses serving to attached dead birds onto the hunters belt. #cards #playingcards #medieval #divinationcards #tarot #tarotcards #tarotreading #hunting #medievalhistory #history #medievalburgundy

The 'Shoal Creek' Chaste Tree (vitex agnus-castus), pictured here, gets its nickname from the erroneous medieval belief that the stems and leaves were anti-aphrodisiacs.

But who can resist those baby blue buds?

Today’s Inktober theme is furious - Woodstock is most unimpressed because he has been made to wear clothing that his nephew, King Richard II, has chosen for a special occasion, which is not what he would have chosen himself. Now some unfortunate person has got on his already strained nerves. Probably one of the king’s mates who, admittedly, deserve what’s coming. .

"Where have you brought us this time, Doctor?" Somehow, the TARDIS ended up on the battlefield where the students in my Medieval history class are recreating a battle from the First Crusade. The first group of students is the Frankish commanders, looking downcast as their crossbowmen fled the field. The Turkish commanders' joy was short-lived, as some of their cavalry was swarmed by Crusader knights.

Day 32 of #100happydays 
A little rabbit hole from our medieval history studies. We are learning about feudalism, manor life, village life and early European towns/cities in the late 1000's and early 1100's so what better time to make some butter and buttermilk from leftover heavy cream! I gave the boys several activity books from the time period to look through and do what they wanted. E chose to just read them all, while A wants to make all the things and J is just along for the ride 😉

This French #bookofhours from the late #1400s is decorated throughout with partial borders and initials. Thought to have been created for use by the Benedictine congregation of Tiron, the name Bernard is named amongst the martyrs. The congregation was founded in c.1106 by Bernard de Ponthieu, or Bernard d’Abbeville (1046-1117) at Tiron Abbey. Bernard believed in the restoration of asceticism and strict observance of the Rule of St. Benedict in #monastic life, focusing on manual labour. In under 5 years the Order of Tiron owned 117 priories and abbeys in France, England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland. The order was integrated into the new Benedictine Congregation of St. Maur in 1627.

The Inauguration of the Order of the Star, 6 November 1356. Depiction from a late fourteenth century manuscript. Many orders of Chivalry were founded across Christendom in the fourteenth century, the most prominent amongst these being patronised by powerful kings. The Order of the Garter, founded by Edward III in England in 1348, was arguably the most successful and renowned among these, and earned the admiration of other kings. Jean II, King of France, smarting from defeat at the Battle of Crecy and looking to restore the reputation of French knighthood, decided to found his own order in imitation of his English rival. Called the Order or Company of the Star after the Star of Bethlehem which guided the Three Wise Men at Christ's birth, the inauguration ceremony for the order took place on 6 November 1351, and membership initially comprised of roughly one hundred Knights. Jean encouraged the great chivalric of Sir Geoffroi de Charny to become involved, and Charny probably wrote his famous 'Book if Chivalry' to advertise the order. Many members of the Order fought together at the Battle of Mauron against the Anglo-Bretons the following year. The Knights had sworn never to flee from battle or to surrender, an oath which would prove their undoing. The Anglo-Bretons had the better of the fight, and the Knights of the Star, true to their oaths but lacking military common sense, were struck down on the field, refusing to withdraw or be taken prisoner. The losses in the battle decimated the order's numbers, and diminished its importance in the following years. At the Battle of Poitiers in 1356 many of the remaining members fight under King Jean against the English and many members of the Order of the Garter. Geffroi de Charny was killed while bearing the Oriflamme, France's sacred war banner, and King Jean was captured. With the King a prisoner and most of the original Knights dead, the Order of the Star sunk into insignificance and irrelevance. With Jean's death in 1364, his son and successor Charles V showed little interest in reviving the order, which had effectively become defunct. #orderofthestar #companyofthestar #orderofchivalry #chivalry #France #jeanii

Jean encouraged the great chivalric of Sir Geoffroi de Charny to become involved, and Charny probably wrote his famous 'Book if Chivalry' to advertise the order. Many members of the Order fought together at the Battle of Mauron against the Anglo-Bretons the following year. The Knights had sworn never to flee from battle or to surrender, an oath which would prove their undoing. The Anglo-Bretons had the better of the fight, and the Knights of the Star, true to their oaths but lacking military common sense, were struck down on the field, refusing to withdraw or be taken prisoner. The losses in the battle decimated the order's numbers, and diminished its importance in the following years. At the Battle of Poitiers in 1356 many of the remaining members fight under King Jean against the English and many members of the Order of the Garter. Geffroi de Charny was killed while bearing the Oriflamme, France's sacred war banner, and King Jean was captured. With the King a prisoner and most of the original Knights dead, the Order of the Star sunk into insignificance and irrelevance. With Jean's death in 1364, his son and successor Charles V showed little interest in reviving the order, which had effectively become defunct. #orderofthestar  #companyofthestar  #orderofchivalry  #chivalry  #France  #jeanii 
This French #bookofhours from the late #1400s is decorated throughout with partial borders and initials. Thought to have been created for use by the Benedictine congregation of Tiron, the name Bernard is named amongst the martyrs. The congregation was founded in c.1106 by Bernard de Ponthieu, or Bernard d’Abbeville (1046-1117) at Tiron Abbey. Bernard believed in the restoration of asceticism and strict observance of the Rule of St. Benedict in #monastic life, focusing on manual labour. In under 5 years the Order of Tiron owned 117 priories and abbeys in France, England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland. The order was integrated into the new Benedictine Congregation of St. Maur in 1627.

A medieval multiplication table, showing times tables for 1 through 10. The table itself is surrounded by four fish, and around the frame three dogs chase a hare. This diagram comes from a twelfth-century copy of 'De institutione arithmetica' by the sixth-century philosopher Boethius. Boethius's treatises on music and arithmetic were fundamental to later medieval education. This manuscript was made in England or the north of France. It is now in the British Library (MS Harley 549, f. 14).⠀

Died #OTD in 1356, Joan de Geneville, countess of March, the widow of Roger Mortimer, 1st earl of March (ex.1330). A mother of twelve and the matriarch of the Mortimer family for many years, Joan spent some years in prison in the 1320's after the failed rebellion of her husband. She died in the 26th anniversary of the coup at Nottingham Castle where her husband was arrested. #themortimers #medievalwoman #mortimerwomen #medievalhistory #toughladies (the arms are of Geoffrey de Joinville, Joan's grandfather whom she inherited lands from and named her longest surviving son after)

In the 13th century AD, the Byzantine Empire underwent one of its most tumultous periods. The capital of Constantinople was taken and sacked by treacherous Crusader forces, and reclaimed only decades later by Byzantine remnants from the Empire of Nicaea, reforming the empire. However, still divided between varried successor states and faced with enemies from all sides, Byzantium is in for a fight for its life. One of the most important ones took place near the port of Demetrias in Greece, as the Byzantine emperor Michael VII Palaiogolos attempts to revive the empire's power...
Will Michael's grand plan to restore the greatness of the Byzantines succeed? Or will his forces be overcome and his hopes dashed? In this series, spanning eleven chapters, we will explore the causes behind the Battle of Demetrias in 1275 AD, how the opposing forces fought, and how the battle was won. And lost.

Un de las cosas más chulas que vimos y que más flipó a las niñas durante nuestra escapada, fue el Castillo de Oropesa de Toledo. Increíble lo grande que es y su perfecto estado de conservación. Vistacas increíbles de los paisajes de La Mancha.

On this day in 1216, my 26th great grandfather, King John of England died in New Castle from dysentery. His body was taken south by mercenaries and buried in Worcester Cathedral. 
Pictured is a replica of his 1232 effigy in Temple Church, London.

I’ve had this idea in the back of my mind to do a photography reinterpretation of famous artworks for today's culture. I have a minor in Medieval Renaissance Studies, so my heart lays amongst Da Vinci and Michelangelo. // There’s a link in my bio to see my interpretation of the Mona Lisa- so dainty in size, so mighty in legend.🌹

This is my favourite photo from Tallinn 💕 the Alexander Nevsky Cathedral 🕌 looking strangely mismatched amongst the pastel almost Scandinavian buildings of Estonia but so so beautiful ✨ we were surprised to find that it was fairly young (just over 100 years old) and built in the Russian revival style! Having done a bit of Wikipedia research I found that it was named after Alexander Nevsky (surprise) who won the 'Battle of the Ice' in 1242 which was literally a battle fought on the frozen territorial waters of present-day Estonia! Pretty cool huh! 🗡🛡 .
