One of my roommates was a history major. She took medeival history while
we were pair, and her reading resourses were indeed excellent. Her
professor had a hand-out that was a basic flow-chart that helped you
determine if it was OK to have sex in period if you were a good Catholic.
I feel good about the accuracy of the sheet. I feel it's much more
interesting (and relevant) than iron underwear.
Of course, my last history teacher was a member of my shire.
