   Re-creations at Camlann village require research in a wide range of topics, allowing us to reasonably reproduce the buildings, clothing, food, tools, and furnishings of medieval daily life.  Our library has been collected over a 30 year period, and is added to regularly.  New additions are listed in our members' quarterly newsletter.  Books here include secondary sources, reproductions of primary sources, and selected general works, but with a preference for detail on specific subjects.  Camlann Donors are welcome to visit, by appointment, for reading and research.
