Here are some of my favorite links:
(this list will be constantly updated as I find new, cool stuff while I'm "surfing" so check back often)


You can research artists who worked during the period by country, or you may peruse the entire artist list.  Note:  If you decide to use the time index sort, bear in mind that the date an artist is listed under reflects his/her date of birth, not necessarily their active painting period

Links to other sites; the Cooper Hewitt plates are lovely!

If you want to make your own hat, try this site (don't mind the cheesiness and the condescending attitude):

Cooking: See the show, get the recipe. Don't subscribe to Gourmet or Bon Appetit? Many of their recipes are here. Want to try something medieval? Look here.
Brewing: The man - see my article. Mead and wine recipes. More Mead recipes. Keep those recipes coming! Hey, I'll steal recipes from anywhere!
Got fruit? Don't think you know what kind of wine a fruit would make - it can be an eye-opening surprise! And don't limit yourself just to fruit; vegetables and herbs can be used as well, either with or without fruit. Experiment!

He'll tell you what you need to know without scaring you. He has a ton of experience

Misc: Lots of foolish fun. Be sure to look at every homepage, and check out Strongbad's emails. Help poetry evolve. A great research tool. Historical photos galore. OK. Imagine a TV cooking show where the host is an octopus.
