New blog post! I finished reading The Travels of Sir John Mandeville and wrote down all of the fun middle english words I didn't know. Here are a few examples:

mickle: a great many
"Men go to the city of Rames, the which is but a little thence; and it is a fair city and a good and mickle folk therein."

septentrion: north, or northerly regions
"And therefore in the Septentrion, that is very north, is the land so cold, that no man may dwell there."

Looking for recommendations for an introduction to sanitation engineering (ie landfills, bioremediation) and engineering ( ie grid scale power generation and distribution). Mundane, but fascinating topics that I've found terribly hard to find material on aside from Wikipedia.
