April Newsflash

Greetings Gentle Reader,

This month see the addition of a number of ecclesiastical studies examining the different religious orders and their part in western medieval society. These include, ‘The Other Friars; Carmelite, Augustinian, Sack and Pied Friars in the Middle Ages’; ‘The Cistercians’; The Francicans in the Middle Ages’; ‘The Benedictines in the Middle Ages’; ‘The Chronica Maiora of Thomas Walsingham (1376-1422)’. We also have the new release titles from Shire which include ‘Beauty and Cosmetics, 1550-1950’ and our latest shipment has replenished the re-enactor supplies of chapes/agulets, dress pins, towels and combs. Last but certainly not least we have the April magazine issues of Ancient Warfare (Vol6 issue 1) and Medieval Warfare (Vol2 issue 2).

We hope everyone had a wonderful and safe Easter break, particularly for those traveling to and from Rowany Festival at Glenworth Valley. It was great to see so many friends and we look forward to being there, full time, in 2013 with our new Past Tents, Tudor Pavilion.

Until next month we bid you all, good reading.

Paul and Loreena
