Women in Ancient and Medieval Times

Well Met!

I hope to make this site a collection of information about women in the Middle Ages and earlier times. Because this topic has the possibility of being incredibly vast, I intend to limit myself, at least for now, to Western Europe between the end of the Roman Empire and the Renaissance. But we'll see where my fancy takes me.

Welcome to my site. Feel free to explore, and please come back again, because I'm always adding new resources to the list.
