Aldyth asked:
<<< I am looking for good documentation for various grains during  
our  period.
My A&S paper is  going to be about bread, the  fermentation process  
and the
grains used. What I am really hoping to find  is something along the  
lines of
bread from x was made with x flour.   Because x grain grew there. >>>

You might want to check these files in the FOOD-BREADS-GRAINS section  
of the Florilegium.

When you finish your A&S paper, I'd love to consider it for the  
Florilegium. Often such papers will work if they can stand alone  
without the object they are documenting. Since my standard policy is  
to take updates you can always replace it with a more formal paper on  
the same subject later, or update it as you learn more.
