Medieval Castles Information

Welcome to the Medieval Castles Information Blog. I will be posting various information about my research into medieval castles including medieval castle floor plans, building medieval castles (models), and life in a medieval castle. You are invited to visit my website All About Medieval Castles & Medieval Siege Weapons for more information.

Medieval Movies - Medieval Videos

Hello and Welcome to my Medieval Castle Blog.

This year has flown by. I am trying hard to get back to actively posting on this blog. And it seems like I will have more time to do that over the Fall to Spring months. =)

I have been working on two big projects this year at the same time.

One is a software project and the other is a website project.

I built what I believe to be the best website builder currently available. It is easy to use and very fast. If you can write an email you will now be able to build a website. If you want to launch your own medieval website (or a site on any other subject that interests you) please check out the Easy Website Builder.

The other project, the website, is for a local video store right here in Cuba, Missouri.

If you are interested in VHS movies, DVD videos, PS2 games and more I highly recommend checking out their Movies and Games website!

For some great medieval-style action (especially seeing the siege weapons in use) you can pick up a Lord of the Rings VHS for a very small price.

That's it for today. I will try to post more regularly in the coming weeks!

Best regards,

Garfield Benjamin

Medieval Newsletter - Where Does the Time Go?

Hello and Welcome to my Medieval Castle Blog.

Wow! Can you believe it is already May? Yep, today is May 1st and this year seems to be flying by. In fact, there are only 3 weeks left and school will be out for the summer break here.

I wanted to get the April issue of the newsletter out sometime during the past two weeks but that did not happen and I am fully responsible for that.

However, I have been working and in fact have added at least four new pages of information to the medieval site and launched an ebook since last publishing the newsletter as well as returned to actively updating this blog.

I am scheduling this weekend to mail out the May issue of the newsletter. Unless some major disaster occurs (unlikely) this next issue will be mailed out this coming weekend!

Best regards,

Garfield Benjamin

Medieval Forum: Do You Want One?

Hello and Welcome to my Medieval Castle Blog.

You may remember a post I made last year talking about a medieval forum I wanted to launch for all of the visitors to my website and blog (if you are reading this then yes you are included).

I started work on setting up a medieval forum but became too busy with other projects so the forum was placed on hold.

What I would like to find out is do you want me to set up a medieval forum where you can discuss various topics relating to medieval castles, siege weapons and the other subjects I cover on my website and in this blog?

I figured it makes good sense to ask you since you are the reason I would make the forum.

I believe the medieval forum could become a valuable resource for students, teachers and medievalists. Share information and online resources. Talk about the challenges you face and how you overcome them. Get to know other people who share your interests.

If you are interested in a medieval forum please contact me at my medieval website and tell me you would like me to set up a medieval forum. Scroll down that page and use the easy contact form.

While it is not required, if you don't mind sharing the information, I'd also like to know if you are a teacher, student or a medievalist (although students and teachers can also be medievalists in this case I just mean are you very interested in medieval subjects AND NOT a teacher or a student).

Best regards,

Garfield Benjamin
