The only referances/recipes to horsemeat during the Middle Ages
are outside of Europe. Yes, I know that horsemeat is eaten in
France now, but can you give me some referances to it being

Again, referances to eating seaweeds, please. I think the only
referances I have for this are Iceland and maybe Ireland.
