Have other links, ideas for topics or see a link that is incorrect/no longer works? Let me know at the usual address.
These research lists are a brilliant idea, thanks! I’m total rubbish at finding simple answers quickly, it can be really frustrating.
If you get short on topics can you consider doing a series of historical ones, maybe by century?
I’ve just spent a VERY long time trying to work out how much various household items would have cost at the end of the 16th century and therefore whether my characters could afford them (which is easier if you know how much they would have earned for their particular profession). It wasn’t easy (for me).
