About Dr Eleanor Janega

Going Medieval has long been the premier destination for everything you ever wanted to know about medieval history and how it's built our world, with added swearing.

If you enjoy my work and would like to see it continue, this is a great way to support it and see it more often. Sadly, we live in a society, and my time is limited because of pesky things like earning enough money to remain in housing. Access to the blog is and always will be free because the people need to know about medieval history, but patrons help make more content possible. 

In appreciation for their support, all patrons will receive a patron only monthly medieval history video or audio. In other words, you gonna get some media you don't have to read. Said monthly media will take several forms. These include:
Pubcasts - in which I go drink a pint with another medievalist and we discuss history stuff.
Watch alongs - in which I will watch a terrible "medieval" movie and complain about it, allowing you to synch it up and watch at your own leisure. 
Virtual tours - where I will virtually take you around a particular medieval place and tell you about it.
Object discussions - where I will tell you about some medieval thing I have a lady boner for.
Honest to God lectures - I am an actual lecturer. (I know.) I will do some for you sometimes.
Q&A's - in which I will answer patron questions.

The point is, this is some good and varied content which you can strap to your veins.

In addition, patrons also receive a monthly patrons-only podcast where we deep dive into medieval sources. We will read the source and then add the context of the document. We'll try to figure out, among other things, why this medieval preacher is yelling at you, why a certain king wants you to know about his military exploits, or why Chaucer thinks this is funny. The object is to allow patrons to understand a bit more about the process of doing history, and also a but more about how the medieval imagination works. Also, hopefully it'll be funny.

Patrons will also receive a monthly round-up of all the history articles and discussions that I enjoyed, as well as sneak peaks of and updates about my upcoming projects.

At the moment this content is delivered bi-monthly, with the video and round-up coming together, and the podcast two weeks after that.

Because Going Medieval believes that people with more expendable cash aren't inherently better, all tiers will receive the same access to the same content. It's up to you to decide how much you can afford and not screw your girl over while she's out here hustling. The extremely big spenders will, however, receive Pubcast shout outs, cuz you are so down.
Goals
$1,584.05 of $1,735.36 per month
