Freedom, feuds, purgatory

Women adorned with glittering jewels, warriors with ‘kletsies’, a type of spear that could be used as a vaulting pole, and shorn hair. Violent feuds between clans. A landscape where an extraordinary number of castles, churches and monasteries dominated the horizon. This is not the fantasy world of a newly launched computer game, but a description of Friesland during the full and late Middle Ages, based on new research.
