Research 105: Artifacts and Relics
I was going to post a thread on using surviving CW artifacts and relics in museums, public and private collections, reference books, etc., etc., for historical and cultural inferences about life in the CW Past and what that can mean for our collective knowledge "hinge point," clothing, gear, and activities...
But, I am looking for input, suggestions, ideas first- as to condense things down can be hard.
Particulary when it comes to varied needs and applications such as, but not limited to:
1. Vendors and makers wanting to correctly reproduce goods based upon proper raw materials, patterns, forms, and period manufacturing technology.
2. Reenactors/Living Historians wanting to use historically accurate and pperiod--corect clothing and gear in histoircally accurate activities.
3. Researchers and historians wanting to make discoveries about specific units at specific times and places during the War, for both knowledge or publication.
4. Combinations of the above.
Etc., etc, etc.
What would YOU like to see (in a 100 words or less... ;-) )
Any requests, ideas, wants, help, or direction- would be appreciated.
