Any series / books that revolve around basically DIY in medieval times?

I want to learn to do all sorts of shit without electricity. Dig a well, make a forge, etc

theres a youtube series of a guy who does primitive stuff. Dont remember the name of it but its someting like primitive technology or something. I think he wears a leaf.

I think a great youtube series would duplicate Maxwell's achievement starting with Faraday, Ampere, Coulomb, etc., and doing their experiments with crude instruments and homemade equipment like they had, measuring amperes and flux and such when nobody had ever heard of an "amp", much less owned an ammeter, and you powered your stuff with the most godawful batteries imaginable.

And consider the math at the time. All done by hand. How the fuck did Maxwell conclude that electromagnetism could propagate as a wave at the speed of light? That part is incredible to me.

So go do it. I'd watch.

Bless you for reminding me this guy existed. Eric Sloane, "our vanishing landscape" and a few others.
Not medieval, but pre-electricity.

Off the top of my head I think it was because he found that the equations describing electromagnetism satisfied the wave equation, ergo electromagnetism had to be a wave.

There's a great BBC series called "Secrets of the Castle", about guedelon castle which is currently being built using period techniques. They go over stone masonry, blacksmithing, food, clothing, rope making, and weaponry. it's a good watch.

The only BBC I like isn't allowed on tv

>> No.1535895

then you don't get to learn the secrets of the castle.

Dr Stone is a manga about a genius who recreates modern conveniences after the world has reverted to caveman technology after thousands of years of everyone on Earth being turned to stone.

just search for 'preppers' those guys are into this kind of thing and some are pretty creative, too

>> No.1538774

Thats part of an entire series that touches on numerous topics- I have been binging it. Best part is they are all on youtube and they mention a number of very comprehensive books that they base the shows off of.

Crap. I almost said the same thing. Don't want to be one of those repetitive asses that go off half cocked. These are cool books. I found a couple kicking around the thrift store.

MrChickadee on YouTube is good. Of course there's Roy Underhill with The Woodwright's shop, and he has books out too.

Here's probably my favorite youtube channel touching the subject. Not medieval but colonial America.
