Topic: School Report - Medieval Museum

ClassBrain Visitor:

I am doing a report on the lower class system in the Medieval times. I
decided to go with a "traveling museum theme" I want to make or find
artifacts of the time. Do you have any low budget suggestions?

ClassBrain Response:

I've attached an excellent file on
“Period” Toys and Games for children (and adults)
Patrick Cauldwell (Hrafnir Fiachsman) a member of the SCA that teaches a
class on the subject.

Here is
another link by Lady Margritte of Ravenscroft, another member of the
SCA (Society of Creative Anachronism). She has some excellent information
on games from the Middle Ages. Did you know that’s when nine pins (bowling)
became popular?

Here's an
extensive set of links that should help you with your project.

All of these directions for crafts of the Middle Ages are from
Florilegium's site.

Good luck on your project, and have fun. Let us know how your artifacts come
out. If you send us a picture we'll post it on our site!
