Medieval plumbing – and its depiction.

I’ll begin by saying that I’m not among those who opine or theorise that the manuscript’s “bathy-” section a.k.a. one of the ‘ladies’ sections is all about plumbing (or alchemy, come to that).

But for those whose theorising runs along those lines (ahem), it might be helpful to compare the imagery in those sections with actual medieval drawings of actual plumbing – so here’s a good, long, thoroughly illustrated post from the Gardens Trust, and if you are – as I am –  fascinated by technical detail then you’re in for a treat.
