      it and wanted to share it!

      http://www.findsdatabase.org.uk/

      It's the Portable Antiquities Scheme's Finds Database and contains thousands
      of records of various antiquities and theres over 3000 medieval finds on
      there with photos, including brooches, buckles, straps and that sort of
      thing. Great for anyone wanting resources to make metal artefacts from! :)

        HI all, just found a book I've been searching for for a YEAR and added it
        to the book database under "Daily Living". It's "A Medieval Book of
        Seasons" and its absolutely fantastic, featuring tons and tons of period
        (15th c.) full color images that depict daily life of the average Joe in
        western Europe at the time. It's arranged by the seasons (since most things
        centered around crops and food and animals), and the text is just as
        wonderful as the eye candy....er, I mean color pictures. 8-) A true
        treasure to have on hand, as a picture truly is worth a thousand words....
        you can pick out SO many details from one image that even the authors may
        have missed. Fantastic for costumers, cooks (what was in season when?),
        gardeners and botanists, people working with period animal breeds,
        folklorists, those who want to know what a basket or pottery item or
        gardening tool actually looked like...... it's a MUST HAVE book for
        everyone on this list. And I'm so glad I found the box it was in
        today!!!!!!!!!!! *does the happy dance*

            The average Joe where in western Europe at the time? What
            culture/cultures does the book depict? Where are the images taken
            from?

                  Primarily England, France, and "Flemish" (is that Belgium?) with a few
                  German, Spanish, Italian, etc. in the mix as well. They are taken from
                  assorted "Book of Hours" and illuminated manuscripts in various museums and
                  library collections. Every illustration's source is fully annotated.
