I made a set of props for this show (coin dies). Unfortunately the segment on money was cut before it was filmed.

Do you think you could tell us a bit about it?

They wanted something from the region near the castle, about 1250, so I made a set of dies based on the denier tournois of Louix IX, similar to this: https://www.cgbfr.com/louis-viii-le-lion-et-premiere-partie-du-reg ne-de-louis-ix-denier-tournois-c-1223-1245-ttb,v37_0005,a.html

I had a blacksmith make me a set of die blanks based on a 13th century pair in the British Museum (the lower die has a large spike on it, for driving into a heavy stump). I then faced the dies to ensure they were flat, and engraved the die faces using tools that I made, based on medieval originals. I struck a few sample coins, then sent the dies and a dozen silver blanks to England, where I'm sure they're sitting in a warehouse somewhere.

Wait wait wait. Are there THREE professional medievalists on POETV?

glasseye - 2018-10-11
I'm no professional; I'm an engineer that did a minor in history in undergrad and does medieval metal art stuff as a hobby. :)

Can you make me a medieval cockring?

glasseye - 2018-10-12
I could, but I won't.

glasseye - 2018-10-11
Oh, and they paid me to do it, which was cool, since this sort of thing is a hobby for me.

I dislike modern documentary style. The endless commentary by the people involved, the fact that they don't really know anything and are just actors...

E.g.: on the hamster-wheel thing, they feel the need to include the clip of the guy saying "It can see it coming up!" Thanks! That really adds to me enthusiasm!
