Medieval Crafter is a site, blog, and forum about crafts from before the 17th century; any culture is open for discussion. No "specific" date is supposed to be inferred from the name. 

The goal of this site is to bring medieval and ancient techniques and objects into the modern world. 



Periods this site focuses on:

Classical  Antiquity the times before the Middle Ages within recorded history. This usually is referring to ancient Roman and Grecian civilizations.
