Resources

Finding good resources and historical references for reenactment is always difficult. That's why we are compiling a list of our favorite websites, suppliers and historical references that we come across on our travels in the real world and browsing the internet. Our hope is this will prove a useful resource for not only the Levy, but also for other re-enactors and those interested in medieval history.
