    medieval resources

    Do any one have any good website with facts and images of medieval stuff. Like armor and weaponary?

    I tried googling for this type of stuff but I can't find much. Our local library didn't have much either, just the ordinary history you'd expect.. I remember that we had books like this in school, with a bunch of images of different weapons and stuff and some fact under each image.

    I'd love getting my hands on books like these again.

    Halp?

    Actually there is one site I constantly browse to learn about weapons and see picture reference called myarmoury.com. It's a fantastic site full of knowledgeable weapon historians and there's some good discussions about weapon weights, functionality, and dating weapons to time period in the forums(a lot of the best stuffs in the forums). There's an album section with old paintings and photos of extant weapons from different time periods in addition to the spotlight series on the homepage. I'm not a member though, and to use the search function you have to be a member, but you could search the site using google's advanced search though.
