OK I left off the entire Phryne Fisher series. Really fantastic books about a 1920's flapper dancer detective seductress. Favourite one was all of them. 16 books in the series. www.allenandunwin.com

Fortune Made his Sword - Martha Rofheart < - a must read at least once in your life. You'll never look at a bowman the same way again.

Anything by Jane Routley - Mage Heart, Fire Angels, etc.

Crown in Candlelight - Rosemary Hawley Jarman (some of her others leave me for dead).

In a Dark Wood Wandering - Hella Haasse. A Middle Ages scene with some very detailed stuff in it showing a author who has done a heap of research.

Anything by Sara Douglas - Sinner, Pilgrim, Crusade, etc.

Of course, The Mists of Avalon (for a female point of view)

Medieval Warhorse - RHC Davis. Just got that sent over from US and its a detailed excellent barding reference.

The Age of Chivalry by Arthur Bryant. Um...bit heavy going and stuffed if l can glean anything from it.



If you are into costumes making,
Medievil Costumes In England & France by Mary Houston. Out of print in 1939 but well worth hunting down. Out of 30 odd costume reference books l have, this one is by far the best for little details often removed by time.

If you are into Illumination - Hamlyn's Medieval Manuscripts is worth a read. As is anything from the Vatican Libary - Just had 'For It Is Written' sent over from a An Tir buddy and its one very well presented book.

A good 'girly' cry can be had with Chadwick's The Champion. (Jousting, etc.)

Am in the middle of reading Hughes 'Helen of Troy'. That lady was a very scarey person!
