Interests

This list is just the beginning. The more I see the more I become interested in; I love to try and learn new things.

14th Century Tournament Culture

I am fascinated about the way in which so much of the courtly culture of the 14th Century, (and much of the Middle Ages), permeated the medieval tournament. What could have remained a fairly crude test of arms became a highly stylized display of wealth and sophistication. The pageantry and the great lengths to which people went to show off is particularly alluring and has been a focus of my research for some time.
