Hosted by McMaster University, this interesting site brings together primary sources, commentary by scholars, interactive features, and music to explore the world of medieval European women. The site is a companion to a recent series on Canadian television, but it easily stands alone. Most of the features are accessed via two sections: Nunnery and World. Each of these presents a neat graphical interface which depicts various activities and experiences of medieval women and links to additional screens exploring related topics. Each subscreen contains a number of links to short descriptions and primary documents, audio and video clips, calendars, and other features. Visitors may also access the primary materials and music directly (though it's much less fun) in the Scriptorium section, which also contains a bibliography and related links. A timeline and internal search engine round out this great site.
