This page offers a collection of links to projects, blogs, and other online resources that are relevant to 'Crossroads' and/or are sites that I follow since they are more generally related to the history of health and medicine, early medieval history, manuscript studies, the global middle ages, interdisciplinary research, and so on… I've grouped them in loose categories by topic but there is definitely some overlap between them. It should also be noted that I've included some blogs/projects that have now ended; although they might be inactive, I've decided to list them here since I still find them to be valuable resources.

Please let me know if you have any suggestions for other sites I should add!
