Many thanks indeed to all my long-suffering readers and friends. Yesterday, my website arrived at 15,000 hits! I know it's small fry in global web-traffic terms, but it's a pleasure to the Anglo-Saxon Monk that so many people have bothered to take a look at his slightly mad musings on all things medieval.
Particular thanks to the lovely people that were kind enough to be interviewed (I have devised a very effective, monastic, arm-up-the-back coercion technique):
Gale Owen-Crocker on the new ending to the Bayeux Tapestry; Patricia Bracewell on fictionalising Queen Emma; Christina Petty on Anglo-Saxon spinnin' an' weavin'; and Mark Faulkner on the mystery of Merlin's magic spells.
There's much to look forward to in the next few weeks, including: an interview with a real Viking who does tarot cards; how to lose both sin and weight on medieval fasting; and, my personal favourite, what the monks of Cartmel Priory rested their bottoms on!
You can't wait, can you!
