Lectures in Medieval History As students at a university, you are part of a great tradition. Consider the words you use: campus, tuition, classes, courses, lectures, faculty, students, administration, chancellor, dean, professor, sophomore, junior, senior, fees, assignments, laboratory, dormitory, requirements, prerequisites, examinations, texts, grades, convocation, graduation, commencement, procession, diploma, alumni association, donations, and so forth. These are the language of the university, and they are all derived from Latin, almost unchanged from their medieval origins. The organization of this university, its activities and its traditions, are continuations of a barroom brawl that took place in Paris almost 800 years ago.
DIY Gold Tube Bracelets I have very vivid memories of walking into a bead store for the first time, almost 15 years ago, and being overwhelmed by the million and ten ideas that filled my mind.

That moment was the catalyst for my eventual path into jewelry design and craft – my higher calling, if you will. Today’s tutorial takes me back to my first foray into jewelry making, where I’ll show you how to make two delightful bracelets using the same basic component. Get inspired and have fun! For single, adjustable gold tube bracelets, you’ll need:
Medieval food Medieval cookery books There are over 50 hand-written medieval cookery manuscripts still in existence today.

But most are devoted to recording the dishes of the medieval kitchen. Anglo-Saxon and Viking Crafts - Fishing The consumption of fish was an important part of life in the early medieval period and therefore the catching, preparation, storage 1 and cooking 2 played an equally significant role in everyday life. Although in 730 AD, according to Bede, Bishop Winfrid of Colchester apparently: '...found so much misery from hunger, he taught the people to get food by fishing. For, although there was plenty of fish in the seas and rivers, the people had no idea about fishing, and caught only eels.
Tabela periódica dos condimentos (Please see the very important note at the bottom of this table.) A page that identifies itself as "The strange and true story of The Periodic Table of Condiments". The original version of this table (which I have shamelessly copied, colorized, and make no intellectual property claims upon) has the following attribution: Since I continue to receive messages quibbling with the contents of this chart, allow me to be more specific: I didn't write this f***ing thing. Paris tourism, paris hotels + monuments - Paris Eiffel Tower News According to legend, a pair of doves nested on the window sill of the mason/sculptor’s house. The flood-induced collapse trapped the female bird in the wreckage, but the male got away. He brought her kernels of grain in his beak and water sucked from the nearby river in a straw until she could be freed.
sewing 101: fabric boxes It seems no matter what I do, I can never get a handle on all the tiny odds and ends that accumulate around my house. From craft materials to hair ties, the bits and bobs are constantly trying to take over, so in the never-ending quest to corral them, these little fabric bins were born. You can make one of these soft boxes in almost no time, and in almost any size, so you can customize them to perfectly fit whatever you need to hold. Top each one off with a label holder (also customizable in any shade of the rainbow, thanks to nail polish), and you’ll have a leg up on clutter . . . for a little while, at least. — Brett Bara Read the full how-to after the jump . . .

If a woman suffered with cramps or excessive flow, it was because God willed it. It was also seen as extremely significant that holy women were often found to not menstruate, thus substantiating the belief of regular women were sinners who deserved their lot. In reality, the extremely frugal diets of very pious women were probably the underlying cause for the lack of menses. With a strict monastic diet and lack of proper nourishment, the body could not longer sustain a pregnancy or reproduce and the menses stopped.
