Need something to read?

Been abandoned by your regular bloggers?

I've saved up two posts I liked just for this occasion.

The first is Karl Steel posting his final exam for an undergraduate course in medieval romance literature. I am fascinated by the format and wonder if I should revisit what I habitually do. My students, past and present, are welcome to chime in on this issue.

Then there is a "material culture" contribution from Darrell Markewitz on "How widespread were blacksmithing skills in the Viking Age?" Lots of fun in the grubby details.

  1. I recently came accross your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I dont know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.

    Good day, Mr Muhlberger !

    I am extremely interested in the following title

    Muhlberger Steven. The Copenhagen Continuation of Prosper: A Translation // Florilegium. 6. 1984. P. 71-95.

    Could you help me in some way?
    I would be much indebted.

    I am from Moscow, Russia and have a solid intention to prepare a Russian translation of the following pieces:

    1) Fasti Vindobonenses Priores
    2) Fasti Vindobonenses Posteriores
    3) Excerpta Sanctgallensia
    4) Paschale Campanum
    5) Cassiodori Chronicon
    6) Prosperi Tironois Epitoma et Continuationes
    7) Jordanis Romana
    8) Pauli Diaconi Romana

    Maybe some others

    I am Vladimir and my e-mail address is as following:
