I thought I'd start this thread where we can post links we've found with good information on Richard III, starting with this one The Richard III Society,

http://www.richardiii.net/

Ikonopeiston (Ikon) | 385 comments Here are a couple from my trove:

The American branch of the Richard III Society - http://www.r3.org/

An exhibit sponsored by the above- http://www.r3.org/rnt1991/inkandpaper...

The second one is full of goodies but they are not easy to see; the web presentation leaves much to be desired.

Well not exactly on Richard but an excellent site on England and it's historical places,

Pat | 39 comments Thanks for the links Misfit and Ikon, I just tried them out this morning and have been thoroughly entertained for the past 2 hours.

I just did the rearranging of Henry Tudor face, lol, that was fun.

Pat, major time suck almost as bad as the LOL cats site. Where's the link to rearranging Henry's face? That sounds like fun.

Very OT but here's the URL for LOL cats, http://icanhascheezburger.com/

With your arrow, you can make Henry as pleasant or as grotesque looking as you please.
Towards the bottom of the page look for...Henry, we hardly knew ye!

Ikonopeiston (Ikon) | 385 comments That is so much fun. I gave him a 'dish face' and a drooping pair of eyes with a turned-down mouth. It is lovely catharsis.

Ikonopeiston (Ikon) | 385 comments Here is another pair of links:
http://susandhigginbotham.blogspot.co...

This is a parody of a xmas newsletter - you will easily detect the writer. This blogger is not a Ricardian.

http://www.r3.org/reading/MedievalFic...

This is from the Richard III Society. It is a useful compilation of fiction on the subject of Richard and his period.

Ikonopeiston (Ikon) | 385 comments I just found this one and am eager to explore it:

Evil giggle.

Ikonopeiston (Ikon) | 385 comments Laura found the site listed below. It is an excellent starting point for document searches.

Great Iko!! I wonder if there is some similar site for France.

Ikonopeiston (Ikon) | 385 comments This is not a Richard specific site, however it is a good source for quick information about a variety of topics concerning the Middle Ages. It seems to cover just about everything you wanted to know and did not know where to find.

Brian (brianwainwright) | 149 comments I can throw a few in here though not all relate to Richard alone. (In fact few do)

http://www.trivium.net/realrichard3/
http://www.richard111.com/
http://www.towton.org.uk/
http://warsoftheroses.proboards50.com...
http://www.northamptonshire.co.uk/gui...

http://www.richardiiiworcs.co.uk/
http://www.warsoftheroses.co.uk/index...

Plus my own general blog on the House of York
http://yorkistage.blogspot.com/

That little lot should keep y'all quiet for a while, but if anyone wants more medieval links, I can do 'em by the yard.

Brian

Cleaning out your desk/computer, eh?

I found the link I posted whilst following up some sources on the destrier. ;)

Uh, throwing this kind of time suck out when I'm at work is not fair, besides the fact that I have a book that I'm dying to get back into when I get home.


message 18: by Brian (new)

Brian (brianwainwright) | 149 comments I have loads of links for research purposes. But some are massive time stealers.

For example Professor Martha Carlin's page at
http://www.uwm.edu/~carlin/

This one should have a health warning, as there's enough stuff on it to lose oneself for weeks. Literally weeks. But it's an invaluable resource.

Ikonopeiston (Ikon) | 385 comments Damn you, Brian! That is like setting a dessert cart in front of a dieter. I have to just taste a little bit off each level. And there went the day... er, week... er, month.
