Okay texty booky -- what is this weird colon with an ascending hook called? Why have I never seen (or noticed) it before? Most importantly, does it have a Unicode? Image from Marjorie Chibnall's OMT edition of Orderic Vitalis's Ecclesiastical History.*

If you ever feel bad about your handwriting, take solace in the fact that this was dutifully inscribed in a widely-circulated, commemorative manuscript in the 13th century

Hey, , I know you'll have opinions on this. So... I've never read Beowulf. Which I realise is shocking. What translation would you rec? I'm looking to read it for fun rather than for academic purposes.

In any new city, I know I can find comfort in familiar objects (and new ones too) in an archaeology museum. Madrid’s Museo Arqueologico Nacional offered familiar coins & strange and wonderful visigothic crowns.

Do any medieval folk recognise this image? Jean de Meun's Boethius, perhaps, or some other text (Machaut? Alain de Lille?) that talks about two-faced Fortune? thanks!

My new favorite medieval image is this one, from the 14th-century French MS Royal 10 E IV: two ducks ominously dragging a (currently empty) coffin somewhere, while another duck tries to look inside.
