Medieval Farming Year

A good source for flavor for your fantasy campaign is knowing the agriculture calender. While most folks know about the spring plowing and planting as well as the fall harvest it would interesting to know how the rest of the months went.

Andy Staples over at the Penultimate Harn site has come up with a great summary of the agriculture year for medieval farming.

Another good source for this sort of insight is Margaret Frazer's A Medieval Year, which looks at both harvest and hunting and puts them into place with the other major events of medieval England.

Very cool, Rob. Tim just got home. You guys have a great session tonight. I'm headed to make him supper and then on with the headphones for a movie.

By the way, I hit 100 posts today. Thanks so much for the inspiration and encouragement to blog.
