  "One of the values in walking to work is mental meandering.     Or if driving, not to have the car radio on.     Now I don't think of myself as necessarily especially creative, but this creativity has to be a profoundly wasteful process.     And that mental meandering, mind wandering & so on, is an essential process.     If you are allowing that mentation to be driven by the radio or the television or other people's conversations, you are just cutting down on your exploratory, your intellectual exploratory time." --- Donald Campbell (quoted in Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi 1996 _Creativity_ pg 99)

  "Goersdorf [Gœrsdorf in Alsace] was probably most sharply divided between unfree and free.     The unfree were all tenants; the free were partly tenants, partly peasant cultivators, partly medium owners.     It was the free who stood witness in front of the duke as 'the men who live in Gœrsdorf', as the text says.     They also ran illage affairs:   perhaps a small-scale law court (called a mallus in Frankish law codes and dispute documents), and almost certainly any ‷collective decisions‴ that had to be made about the economic activities of the villa (village) of Gœrsdorf.     The village seems to have been a compact settlement surrounded by its marca, fields, meadows and woods, all of which would have been exploited [utilized, made use of] for grain- and wine-growing, stock-raising and wood-cutting.     Gœrsdorf was near the edge of the great forest of the Vosges, but it was already by 700 in a fully settled landscape, with several other villages close by, and its own woodland would already have been restricted in size and quite fully used for its products.     There were expanses of wild land in early medieval Western Europe, especially in the woodland zones of central and Southern Germany, but mostly people lived in territories that had been created and developed by humans for centuries, even millennia, and Gœrsdorf was certainly one of those.     Gœrsdorf was not directly dependent on Wissembourg (or the duke of Alsace), but it had to exist in a political frame-work dominated by such figures, and the monastery would have been more powerful than any rival there by the end of the 8th century, leaving less space for autonomous peasant action." --- Chris J. Wickham 2009, 2010 _The Inheritance of Rome: An History of Europe from 400 to 1000_/_The Inheritance of Rome: Illuminating the Dark Ages 400-1000_ pp207-208   〖Heh, now heavily built up from Cleebourg & Riedseltz to Speyer; roads, residences, industrial zones... and only slightly less dense out to Strasbourg and past Mannheim, though there are some hilly areas with more trees to the NW and SE, less than 10 miles across.〗

  "Many peasants had unfree servants and farm workers; and ‷gender‴ relations were unequal as well. Certain tasks were ‷highly gendered‴ [lots of tough grammar riddles to solve? irregular inflections to apply?]: weaving was called 'womanly work'.   And the legal subjection of women (already characterized for the aristocratic world in chapter 8) was at least as complete in the peasant environment, or indeed more so: hence the interest of a woman like Anstruda, who could at least control the terms of her subjection.   Few women appear as independent actors [actresses? another of those riddles, I see] in any of ‷our‴ documents, and even fewer of them are peasants.   Normally men acted for them, as ‷alienators‴ of land or as plaintiffs in court, or else they appeared alongside brothers or husbands." --- Chris J.

  "All documented early medieval ‷societies‴ had standards of value, and these were almost all in coins (the exception was Ireland, where valuations were in slave women and cows).   The Romans [and Lidians before them] had minted a range of coins, in bronze, silver, and gold, to aid tax-collection aboveall Given the ‷simpler‴ fiscal systems of the post-Roman world, a complex set of coins might have been no longer seen as necessary, and the successor states certainly minted fewer types and on a smaller scale, after the Vandals and OstroGoths at least, who followed Roman patterns.

The Franks after 550, and the VisiGoths and Lombards, minted gold coins above all (with silver coins along-side these in Provence and Lombard Italy).   In Francia, where minting was especially de-centralized (there were up to 1K mints in Francia), the percentage of gold in these coins began to drop in the 630s-640s, and by about 675 coins had become entirely silver.

Around 760 the Carolingians reformed the coinage, formally establishing the silver denarius as their currency, and they extended this single coinage to Lombard Italy in 781, after Charlemagne's conquest.   The denarius dominated the next several centuries of Western European coins.   In England, debased gold coins had been minted since the early 7th century [c.610], and silver since the 670s; in the 760s these, too, were replaced by silver pennies that were parallel to those of the Carolingian monetary reform." --- Chris J. Wickham 2009, 2010 _The Inheritance of Rome: An History of Europe from 400 to 1000_/_The Inheritance of Rome: Illuminating the Dark Ages 400-1000_ pg226

It has been 768 days since president Donald J.

  "...almost all early medieval issues [coins] were fairly high-value; a Carolingian denarius was worth around £12 in the [UK] money of 2007 judging by the bread prices listed in the acts of the synod of Frankfurt [am Main] in 794, and a Merovingian or Lombard gold triens or tremissis was nominally worth 4 times that, around £50.   Only some Northumbrian and Italian issues seem to have been worth substantially less." -- Chris J.

  "Egypt, at the other end of the caliphate, was finally quiet after 832.   Al-Maamun's army, no longer based on the early Abbasid abna, was initially a rather un-certain collection of East Iranian aristocratic levies, who had trouble taking Baghdad against informal gangs of civilians (ayydrun) even though the defending regular army disintegrated; but he, and especially his military-minded brother and successor al-Mutasim ([reigned] 833-842), built up an army of mercenaries, particularly from Turkic central Asia, many of whom were former slaves, whom our sources generically refer to as Turks.   This was an effective fighting force, not sufficiently Islamized to have its own political programme, not associated with any particular province of the caliphate, and very loyal, at least to al-Mutasim.   They provided the muscle behind the last really big Abbasid attack on the Byzantine empire, which took Amorion in 838, and Turkish leaders were increasingly used as provincial governors.   With the provinces quiescent, a model army, and an increasingly elaborate and extensive fiscal and administrative machine, the 830s and 840s under al-Mutasim and his more colorless son al-Wathiq ([reigned] 842-847) represented a new high point for the centralized Abbasid state, one that could have real staying power: or so one might have thought." --- Chris J.
