Medieval Monday Bibliography

Okay, so for a while now I’ve been meaning to start a bibliography of the books I’ve been using to research my Medieval Monday posts, to prove that I’m not making this all up at the very least.  But writing bibliographies is about as much fun as clipping my toenails.

But then I found THE MOST AWESOME SITE IN THE WORLD!  Easybib.com creates correctly formatted bibliographies for you.  All you have to do is enter the ISBN number of the books you’ve used.

So here it is, ladies and gentlemen, my Medieval Monday Bibliography:

      Thanks! I think there are a few other books that I’ve gotten more recently that I need to add to that list too (says the history/book nerd). =D

    Hi Merry. Love your Medieval Monday posts and the bibliography too. Would you know of a book detailing what warfare was like during that time period. I have been having a hard time finding one. Thanks!
