RPG Media Monday - Ancient & Medieval Manuscripts

Here's a quick note about some upcoming website adjustments for the CMG Blog Triad that will manifest in March.  I've often felt that having some types of cartography on Terrain Tuesday on MFWARS.com was shoehorning.  While I feel battlemats, battlemaps, and the like work well for this category, because they are essentially two-dimensional terrain, larger scale maps and cartography are going to move starting in March to the Grymvald.com corner of the CMG Blog Triad appearing on what will be dubbed as Mapping Monday.  They fit better with the setting-oriented blogging for Grymvald.com.  This will replace the old Monday blog on Grymvald.com known as RPG Media Monday which will in turn move to the CreativeMountainGames.com Monday blog slot.  That will replace Media News Monday, since I have often felt that news there was not very timely.  What I had posted there either had been widespread news by the time it was posted or would work well enough under the heading of RPG Media Monday.  I hope these adjustments don't throw anyone for a loop.  I feel they will work better going forward. 
Thanks! - Mark CMG
Here are some links that are a couple / few years old but well worth a visit.  The first from goodereader.com is to an article that tells us the "Vatican Library Digitizes 4,400 Ancient Manuscripts and Gives Them Away for Free" here.


Also, on medievalists.net, they shout "Mine, mine, mine!" and discuss "Marking Medieval Manuscripts, Then and Now" here.


Finally, on neatorama.com, they show us a "Medieval Manuscript Peed on by a Cat" here.


What can be gleaned from Media
and used in our tabletop RPGing?
