Of particular interest to me is the Out of Edoras article. I hope this becomes a series of articles as there is much left to be written. Enjoyed it thus far.

The note at the bottom of the page is sincere (and serious!) Please don't hesitate to shoot us an email at middleearthreenactmentsociety@gmail.com to get put on our mailing list. This will cause a PDF of the newsletter to be sent directly to your inbox every season, and will help us gauge how our readership is growing, what is liked, what needs improvement, etc. It will remain posted and available here on the forums, too, but getting in on the mailing list would be a great help to us.

Thanks!

Great work, Udwin and all who contributed.

Oh that was a delight - I'm going to have to try that tart when our blackberries come in this year! I wonder if there are any native European plants that might work similarly? I recently saw on the Jas Townsend youtube channel a discussion of substitute coffee made from roasted grains: I've been meaning to try that out. ALSO I've been reading The Two Towers recently, and just came to the part in Ithilien: the Professor notes a fair amount of herbs and such growing in those southern climes that stood out to Sam, and I can easily imagine such things making there way up to the Shire at least on an intermittent basis.

Regarding the craftsmen of Bree - for those who have not yet seen it, may I recommend Forgotten Arts and Crafts by John Seymour? Mr. Seymour is a near-contemporary of Tolkien's, one generation older, and also a lover of the English countryside. This book is a wonderful look at all the ways the people both men knew and loved made their way in the world - with a great many photos and drawings of how things were once done. If you want a look at how the fields and farms of Breeland and the Shire might have looked - and perhaps some tips for a craftsman persona - I think it's a grand start.

Greg - looking forward to seeing your cloak an hood together in their natural environment! :)
I do like the discussion of ponies as well - how fun!

Glad you enjoyed it!
There is indeed much more to come, simply too much for one issue. :)
