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 :)


    1. Thanks! for getting more info on the horses.

  2. Those are both new to me although denier sounds familiar. I couldn't define it though.

  3. It's a French coin from thr 19th century.

  4. Both new to me and difficult to pronounce. ;)

  5. Hello! I just would like to give a huge thumbs up for the great info you have here on this post. I will be coming back to your blog for more soon. Information Information
