Word of the Week #8 – maliënkolder – Dutch

This week’s WOTW is  maliënkolder – and means chain mail in Dutch. I realise this might not immediately strike you as the most useful word in the world, but if you ever find yourself in the middle of a battle-ground in medieval Holland, you’ll be glad you knew it.

    A few weeks ago, I watched a demonstration of a woman making chain mail at a Medieval faire here in the south of France. While I am not of your generation, I heartily applaud you efforts on this site. Well done!
    Thanks for stopping by one of my blogs
