How to Make a Medieval Pen
Just what you always wanted to know--how to make a medieval pen! At Medievalist.net, this video shows exactly how a 15th century nun made a pen from a big feather from a flight bird like a goose. Might be fun to show to your class when you cover the Middle Ages. It was made by Ferrers Household, a re-enactment group dedicated to displaying skills from the 15th century.
