For those of you who would like to know more about the history behind my work, I have added several resource pages. First is a page containing suggestions for some additional reading, to get you started with the complexities of life in medieval Florence. If you would like to know more about the history behind the Buondelmonte story in my book, A Thing Done, check out my Author Notes. My blog is also contains many relevant posts, and to help you find them all quickly, here is a list of links to those posts. (These links are specific to the Buondelmonte story; some other links talk about other aspects of Florence in the middle ages.)
If you have even half as much fun as I did pursuing this fascinating period in the history of Florence, you’ll be glad you delved a little deeper into the topic. Enjoy!
