<<< It's been rather quiet there lately, so I'd suggest all interested parties join that group to share our research, ideas and liven things back up. :-) >>>
Of you do, and you write your research up as an article or A&S documentation, I would love to consider adding it to the Florilegium.
I have that article I mentioned earlier on making your own period style dog cart, that also details how to train your dog to pull it.
I've gotten the okay from Rebbeca of the Greyhound to add her article on coursing to the Florilegium, but I have yet to get an electronic copy. Maybe its time to renew that effort. :-) Rebbeca teaches a class at Gulf Wars on coursing and its history. I think she is in Glean Ahbann, where coursing is ongoing.
In the meantime, perhaps these files in the ANIMALS section might be of interest?
