Research

A cup of coffee helps the work flow!

I find research to be a fascinating part of my HEMA journey. Reading old source material to improve my understanding of fencing methods and the context in which these methods were used is a pleasure, and quite eye-opening. Putting two and two together to reach new conclusions, based on evidence, can be quite a lot of fun!

I have written and edited books on the subjects of HEMA and history. I have written blog articles, as well as other articles for journals, magazines, and general public outreach. I have also made available transcriptions of source material, and conducted surveys and interviews.

Of course, I always welcome donations to help fund my research efforts!
