Additional Site Information

Travels in the UK: A Perfectly Proper Holiday originated in August 2000 as a weekly series of reports based on a personal journal written during a trip to the UK in the summer of 2000. The reports were incorporated into a sister-site of Mostly Medieval in March 2001.

Sister Sites: In the Middle Ages, it was common for large abbeys to send out a group of monks to establish a "sister abbey" or "sister house." Examples of this are Melrose Abbey, in Scotland, which was a sister house of Rievaulx Abbey in Yorkshire, England and Jarrow Abbey in Tynemouth, England which was a sister house of Wearmouth Abbey, in Durham. When particular sections of Mostly Medieval - Exploring the Middle Ages began to expand beyond the bounds of the original intent of the site, new sites were created and developed – "sister sites" – which remain intertwined with their origin at Mostly Medieval.

Affiliate program commissions are used solely to offset operating expenses and to aid in further development of the site.
