I am very interested in the concept of experiential archaeology, which should not be confused with experimental archaeology although the two are somewhat similar. This website is a place for me to chronicle my creation of copies of historical artifacts using historically accurate methods and technologies and what I learn from that process. I try to get as close as possible on the historical accuracy but it's not always possible to be spot on. The experience of creating an object, based as closely upon the technology of the time period it occurs in, and the understanding of that item based on what is learned by using it are the specific dual aims of anything chronicled on this website.

I can't claim to be any sort of expert of any sort on any of the items I have listed on this site but I do hope that my journey through each process can be of some benefit to anyone who has found their way here. If you have any comments or questions about anything here, just send me an email and I'll do my best to answer your questions or address your comments.


The links to the left represent a number of different websites that I either personally manage or that I watch regularly/subscribe to for some of the experiments I've chronicled on this website.
