Wondrous Words Wednesday

Wondrous Words Wednesday

My words today are from The Lady Agnes Mystery Vol. 2 by Andrea Japp

Denier- is currency in the Middle Ages.

Percherons- is a breed of draft horses that originated in the Huisne Valley in Western France.

  1. Hi Mary Ann,

    50-50 this week, so that's great odds :)

    Denier I knew of and I had great fun checking out the Percheron horses, of which there is apparently a 'British Percheron Horse Society'

    I guess that the true British equivalent of the Percheron, is the Shire horse

    We do still have a few independent breweries which use carts pulled by shire horses, for delivering the barrels of beer to their local pubs.

    Great words this time, thanks for sharing :)
