Yesterday evening we drove to Riquewihr, France to check it out and have some dinner. This is a cool little town surrounded by vineyards.

A close-up of the Beauchamp Chapel in the Quire of Tewkesbury Abbey, built by Isabel Despenser in memory of her husband, Richard Beauchamp, in 1422. Described as the Westminster Abbey of feudal baronies, the Tewkesbury Quire has a fine collection of medieval chantry's with noble families buried there. Interestingly, behind the High Alter lies the remains of George, Duke of Clarence, who was executed on orders of his brother, King Edward IV, supposedly by being drowned in a butt of Malmsey wine.... 🍷⛪🛡

Testing the prototype of HEROES VS WARLORDS #boardgame by Dirk Blech. The game has players wander the realm as the titular heroes hailing from three factions: The Amazons, Barbarians and Knights. This #fantasy #wargame is heavily inspired by the popular PC game series #heroesofmightandmagic. Unfortunately, many moons have yet to pass before this game will be playable and at this stage it seems a lot less enjoyable than the Polish Heroes of Might and Magic game which was released by Axel company under official @ubisoft licence a few years ago. However, this is still a prototype, so here's hoping that Dirk will manage to get this game published someday!

Misconseptions about the middle ages [8/10]
They were almost scared of sex!
_________________________________________________
They weren't! They were obsessed with sex!
Much medieval fashion were inspired of genitalia. The bollockdagger had the form of a "wiener", or a set of boobs, I've seen several, even some with nipples. And in the late medieval it was fashionable for a man to wear a codpiece.
-
The church of course didn't like it, but what could the do?
They wasn't allowed to masturbate, they couldn't have sex for their own satisfaction it was only allowed for making children, and sex before the marriage wasn't allowed too. But they were human beings, and it's quite natural, so how the hell could the stop them? They couldn't, people did it anyways.
-
We have plenty of illustrations of sex, and even some "manuals", for what kind of sex that were in fashion.
-
Brothels were also a thing, like I covered last.
-
So people had sex, just as much as today!

Do you know San Gimignano?! San Gimignano - 20 min far from Villa e Fattoria di Radi - is a hill town in Tuscany located near Siena. Surrounded by 13th century walls, the centerpiece of its historic center is Piazza della Cisterna, a triangular square flanked by medieval houses. In the skyline of medieval towers stands the Torre Grossa in stone. The Cathedral of San Gimignano is a 12th century church where it is possible to admire the frescoes by Ghirlandaio in the Chapel of Santa Fina. 🏰🏰🏰
