This dramatic early morning shot of Mont-Saint-Michel – off the coast of Normandy – clearly shows the distinctive tiers of the fortified island monastery. These have been described as analogous to the medieval ideal of the three tiered society formed of three estates. At the top, in the monastic complex itself, are the 'oratores' – those who pray. Below, in the noble town houses and great halls, are the 'bellatores' – those who fight. Finally, at the bottom are the fishing shacks and farm houses of the 'laboratoes' – those who work. The island has been inhabited since ancient times, became a monastic site in the eighth-century, and was home to a community of monks until the French Revolution. Substantially restored in the nineteenth century, Mont-Saint-Michel today is home to around 50 people – around a fifth of them being monks and nuns. ⁠⠀ •⁠⠀ #repost @wazou_75 via @castellinelmondo⁠⠀ •⁠⠀ •⁠⠀ •⁠⠀ #dawn #montstmichel #montsaintmichel #normandy #island #monastery #monastic #fortifications #medieval #threeestates #medievalsociety #architecture #france #gothicarchitecture #art #gothicart #arthistory #history #historyofart #middleages #moyenage #mittelalter #medioevo #edadmedia #medievalart #medievalarchitecture #medievaltimes #medievalhistory

The week before this one. A week, a mere stretch of seven days, that spanned distant worlds and many levels of being. Welcomed on a Sunday with the grounds of Karbala in Hazrat-e Dehli and the enduring 'memory' of Muharram, peaking in the 'celebration' that was Tughlaqabad and brought to a close by 'reflecting' on Shaheed-e Azam's rousing life and times, and a maddening Mandi House evening, again on a Sunday; not to mention Mirza sahab's companionship at both ends. To put it (too) simply, a week that reminded me of a few things. Some essential things. 🙂 Ghiyath al-Din Tughlaq ka maqbara, Tughlaqabad. Hazrat-e Dehli.

᛬🜨 ᛏHEAᛏᚱE ᛟᚠ WAᚱ 🜨᛬ Design based on helmet pressblechs from the Valsgärde VIII helmet found in the princely boat burials at Valsgärde, Uppland province, Sweden and date to the Vendel Period (550-750 AD). The site of Valsgärde is located just north of the most important religious and political centre in ancient Scandinavia, Gamla Uppsala but derives it's notoriety from the fifteen boat burials that were discovered at the site by Sune Lundqvist and Greta Arwidsson in the 1930's dating from the Vendel Period (550-750 AD) and the Viking Age (793-1066 AD). #theatreofwarclothing #valsgärde #vendel #vendeltid #ironage #ironagehistory #germanicironage #germanic #northerneuropean #sweden🇸🇪 #nationalmuseet #stockholmnationalmuseum #svear #geats #gotland #valsgarde #northerneuropean #scandinavia #medievalhistory #medievalart

Performances by @the.medieval.combat.society on the site of Winchester Castle was an exciting way to end Heritage Open Days this year. We hope all who celebrated the 25th anniversary enjoyed the events and performances - we're already looking forward to next year. #winchesterhods #thegreathallwinchester #greathallwinchester #medievalknights #medievalcombat #winchester #history #medievalreenactment #medievalhistory #liveperformance

Haunted Tower hosted by the Shire of Dernhealde yesterday was a chill fun day. I got to judge the Baronial Arts and Sciences Championship, @brighid_of_red_spears and Valya both entered and I was so excited to get to sit down for judging sessions with both of them! @sylvanauctor finally attended a Royal Court with a couple of first event folks from @saintbrutusosu 🤩🎉 And #ameliakitty was happy to have me home at the end of the day. 🥰 . #mysca #midrealm #scalife #sca #artsandsciencessca #medieval #medievalarts #medievalist #medievalhistory #middlekingdom #middlemarches

When some people find out I'm a medieval historian, they ask if that means I teach Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter. In order to clarify, I made this handy-dandy chart! It's not exhaustive and I'd be happy to get suggestions. Of course, anything could be interpreted to fit most categories, but I won't debate whether or not Hermione was in fact a shield-maiden of Hogwarts. 😉 . #medieval #medievalhistory #medievalist #historian #history #middleages #themiddleages #harrypotter #lordoftherings #lotr #venndiagram
