This is NOT a picture of Thomas's ledger. It is the kind of thing I had in mind. Sadly I have lost all detail of what it actually is. Not absolutely sure how useful that is, then. Pilgrims, View Photos, Medieval, Mindfulness, Lost, Bullet Journal, Notes, Detail, Gallery

This is NOT a picture of Thomas's ledger. Or is it? It is the kind of thing I had in mind. Sadly I have lost all detail of what it actually is. Not absolutely sure how useful that is, then.

Calais in the Fort Neiulay is on the right and Fort Risban can be seen at the bottom of the map. Calais, City Photo, Coastal, Tower, Map, Places, Pilgrims, Winter, Winter Time

This is a map of Calais, slightly too late for my purposes, in two senses, but fascinating, nonetheless. It shows what was once called Newnham, now called Nieulay, as the fort to the south of the town where they had the sluice gates. If they shut them, then the river would flood the marshes and no one could come anywhere near the walls of the town itself. Cunning, non?

And this is a view from the keep, either southwards or eastwards, I cant remember. How much has it changed? A few more trees then, perhaps. Pilgrims, Vineyard, Trees, Change, History, Winter, Outdoor, Winter Time, Outdoors

A panorama of century York by E. York Castle is on the right hand side of river, opposite the abandoned motte of Baile Hill Motte And Bailey Castle, Castle Floor Plan, York Castle, Living In England, Fortification, Beautiful Islands, Middle Ages, City Photo, Vintage World Maps

This is York from the south, drawn by Edwin Ridsdale Tate in 1914, showing the city as he - a noted antiquarian - imagined it might have looked in the 1400s. Thomas and Katherine have been there before, of course, in Broken Faith, so they know what to expect, but I had not seen this before, and so I too know a little more clearly what they will find.

'Liber de oculis, qui vocatur 'Salaracer id est secreta secretorum', England 14th/15th century (British Library, Sloane 981, fol. 68r)' doesn't really do this image justice does it?

This is Sir John Fakenham, complete with halo and lion. Actually it is from the Tilliot Hours, from around 1500. But his eyepiece is like John's

Our calendar series for 2012 featured the gorgeous Hours of Joanna the Mad (Add MS 18852), a spectacular Book of Hours that was produced for Joanna of Castile (more frequently, and somewhat unfairly, known as Joanna the Mad) in Bruges between 1496 and 1506. This Book of Hours was clearly...
