Historical Thursday - Medieval Famine

Over on the Medievalists.net website, they feature a paper about the Great European Famine of 1314-22 from the Yale Economic History Workshop by Philip Slavin presented in 2009 titled "How Great Was the Great Famine of 1314-22: Between Ecology and Institutions."  If you're someone who likes some detail and realism in the major disasters you add to your table RPG settings, this will be a fascinating reading for you.  Not a huge read, just a dozen pages or so, a second cup of coffee kind of read.  See more here.
