Re: 16th Century Shields

... made of wood + leather, because I would love to see a reference to non metal targes/targets in use in Britain at this time.

Would a 13thC Anglo-Norman soldier be seen dead in a brat?

... adopt while on campaign? Would the Irish mothers of the leading barons and knights clothe their children in gaelic dress alongside the accepted 'English' styles?

Re: Clingplow

If you look there are bits of gobbledygook English random words in it that make no sense. That was from some financial organization/bank in Polish. The technology (spamming different forums, boards and sites with keywords and links) is called ...
