The Medieval Woman Website
Designed as a springboard for those who wish to learn a little more about the medieval woman: what she wears and why, how to be beautiful according to medieval standards, her personal hygiene and a little about a medieval woman's life - clothing and dress accessories, celebrations and the customs associated with key events in her life- births, deaths, marriages, employment, education, pets and how she spent her days at home and on holidays. There's my sewing galleries, a shopping page, a bibliography and a bunch of other stuff there too!

The Medieval Woman Blog
This is medieval all the way! This is where I post all the behind-the-scenes craft activity where I'm making or sewing or painting things for use in my medieval world, but there will be some book things here too- and lots of cool things I've learned about the very secret sex lives of medieval women while writing the book. Other times, I'll just be excited about things! You can comment or share the posts if you like.
