The Mongolrocco novel is making me happy, currently, because I think I'll be able to use a lot of my old research on the Ottoman Empire and its intersection with the Baltic states in here.

Right now, though, I'm having fun looking at medieval maps of the world. My favorite so far, a mappa mundi placing Jerusalem at the center of the universe, with the three surrounding continents stretching off like the petals of a trillium.* Not that Europe has ever really been anything but a continent by courtesy: let's be honest here, it's a glorified peninsula.

On the other hand, this guy rocks my socks.


* Yeah, bet that was useful for getting around with.
