Additional Site Information

The majority of the information contained in these pages is the result of research undertaken prior to and continued during the writing of a novel set in 13th century Scotland. The novel has long since been shelved; the site lives on and continues to grow.

From July 1998 until 2001 Mostly Medieval was hosted by a number of free servers. In June 2001 the site was transferred to the webmaster's personal domain, www.skell.org. In December 2007, skell.org was set aside for future projects and www.mostly-medieval.com became the site's new, and logical, home.

This site was hand-coded in WordPad and utilizes Java scripts and CSS. Optimized for viewing with a screen resolution of 800 x 600 and 24-bit True Color; viewable in higher resolutions. Tested for browser compatibility in Firefox 1.0 and 1.5, Mozilla 1.5, Opera 7.0, 8.0 and 8.5, Netscape Navigator 6.0, 7.0 and 7.1, AOL Explorer 1.2, and Internet Explorer 5.0, 5.5, 6.0 and 7.0.

Website awards: A text-only list of website awards Mostly Medieval has been honored to receive since its inception in 1999. The webmaster of Mostly Medieval thanks the owners and judging staff of these award programs for their time and dedication.

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.
