About The Book - Blog - Reviews & Interviews - Shop - Author Bio - Rosalie's Medieval Woman Website

 

Rosalie Gilbert is passionate about living history, experimental archaeology and women in the Middle Ages, particularly England where her family origins are. She is a lifetime member of the Friends of the Abbey Museum of Art & Archaeology and a member of the Queensland Living History Federation.

Rosalie has been a guest speaker on Medieval Feminine Hygiene, Medieval Women & Literacy and The Very Secret Sex Lives Of Medieval Women at The Abbey Museum of Art and Archaeology, the Queensland Museum's After Dark Program for the British Museum's Medieval Power:Symbols & Splendour Exhibition, the University of The Third Age's Winterschool Program, the University Pavilion at the Abbey Medieval Festival and various women's social groups.

Her hobbies include historical sewing and reproduction projects, blogging about medieval women things and lying about being at work so she can stay home, hang out with her rescue kitty and eat nachos.

You can find the book and me on Amazon Author Central and on Goodreads as well!
