  1. I have just discovered your blog and am very much enjoying it. Not only that, but I’m currently writing a story of Elves and Orcs, and you’ve already taught me about a couple of interesting trade goods (one of the story’s subplots) and inspired me to look at the kinds of horses medival knights used… Anyway, thanks for writing and keep it up.
