Research Resources: Pre-Industrial Social Survival

For those of you writing a post-apocalyptic type of novel, or perhaps a medieval one, we thought we would put together a list of resource sites to aid in the social aspects of survival that your characters would likely encounter and experience.

1. Bartering

For areas or situations where money is either not available or not an option.

2. Relaying information

This one was harder. How could information be relayed without modern methods besides word of mouth? The ancient Greeks had quite a few ingenious methods.

3. Sanitation and Health

This was interesting...and a bit disconcerting as well.

Hopefully, this wraps up all the different aspects of survival.

4. Types of Societies

This is a great resource to learn about Hunter Gatherer, Pastoral, Agricultural, Horticultural and Feudal Society types.

These resources can be invaluable in helping you craft your fictional world.

Happy Writing everyone!
