Re: EK Herb Guild Meetings or classes...
- Yes, please do post for others! I'm just starting to get into medieval
herbalism in a serious way and would appreciate any info you could post or
point to. I'm in the Shire of Mare Amethystinum, Principality of
Northshield, Middle Kingdom.

A few class handouts that may or may not be useful to other herbalists:
'A Selection of Herbs used in Medieval Times' (the handout from a
scratch-n-sniff herb display at a demo-- it's very basic):
'Spices from the East' (a handlist of spices that were associated with the
Eastern spice trade and/or crusades, with cookery, scent and medicinal
'Scents of the Middle Ages' (a short handout on medical and cosmetic uses
of scented flowers, herbs and spices in the Middle Ages-- due to be
updated and expanded in the next few weeks)
'Jadwiga's Stillroom Booke' (a large handout on various aspects of
herbalism and information on a few specific herbs. It was the handout for
the first-- and most ambitious-- herb class I ever taught; and the class
was a complete failure!)
