    Thanks, Sherry, I’ll check it out.
    Just curious: what’s the origins and purpose of this site?

    I find the most difficult part of researching for historical fiction is the small everyday items that are essential for stories but not important to historians.
    It’s nice to read about wars and rulers etc. After getting the overall picture, though, I need to know about their daily lives — What they wore, what they ate, how they lived, their hopes, fears, mindset… This is more difficult to find out.
