    What's Your Medieval Skill?

    I was at a party last weekend and somehow got into a conversation with some homebrewers about each of our Medieval skills that we could use in case of an apocalyptic event. Since we were all homebrewers - making alcoholic beverages was a shared skill. I can also grow crops/veggies, hunt, fish, and butcher animals, and have construction experience. Preserving meat w/out refrigeration would be a skill set I would like to gain. Seeing the stockpiling food thread made me think this topic might be entertaining.

    In case of an apocalyptic event like Zombie outbreak, nuclear holocaust, losing CPR to "big time football" school, what are your Medieval skills?

    What skills would you want to gain?

    I wasn't at that party, but I often times joke about 'brewing being a good post-apocalypse skill too.

    Tough question. I am not very skilled at outdoors-ey things like hunting, fishing, growing food, butchering, etc. But I'm fast, can run a long ways and I can climb trees like nobody's business. So I suppose given a zombie apocalypse, speed and cunning could allow me to survive for a while. But hunting/cooking skills would obviously need to be developed.

    Are guns allowed in your scenarios? Sharpshooting would be on this list of things I'd need to learn, probably right at the top.

    I feel like I'd be one hell of a Falconer, which would prove useful in many ways.

    I share most of the same skills as you. Fishing/hunting, how to cook and clean wild game. I would like to think that all this education has given me a pretty good set of critical thinking skills.

    Not sure what I would want to learn. Probably basic shelter construction, and knot tying skills would be handy.

    Bonus: Here is an ancient and basic way to create a refrigerator out of sand and two pots. Meat spoils in less than one day when exposed at room temperature, but using one of these keeps meat safe to eat for up to 14 days.

    I believe that's called "Wench Wrangling" in Old English.
