Well, I have been getting rather bored with all of the swords and such these days, and have been eyeing lots of pretty pieces from multiple cultures that I'm interested in, that would make nice, functional everyday things for me to use. Some of these would include tables, chairs, cushions, different types of clothing, bags, etc...

Anyone have any information or pictures of some of this stuff that I could use for Mycenaean/Minoan reeactment..?

I have some that might do in one or more of my books (big surprise, eh?). I'll send pics when I have time, hopefully at least a few Friday.

I have some info I will dig up. It includes beds, chairs and such. I have been contemplating building a Mycenaean bed and chair---the start of an encampment!

The elusive thing I am looking for is any info on tents of this era. Homer mentions tents but gives no details. If anybody out there has any leads on tent info, I am listening! I have considered Bedouin type tents, gers (yurts), and the typical Roman type wall tent (which resembles a Greek temple, if you stop and think about it...

Of course, potteryexamples are not difficult to find. I know a historical potter that might be pursuaded to make some items.

That's it for now.
