I'm getting some additional costumes and before Christmas, I'll get a line of gothic and English jewelry. They make really great gifts.

Historically themed website TheCastleCourt.com has some of the best historic replicas available on the internet. Now as the holidays loom around the corner, the site is getting some new items, as well as a new educational blog.
"I've always had a strong interest in knights in shining armor since I was a kid," recalled Sandra Little. "I was fascinated with that period of European history and it's something that I carry with me to this day."
Little is also the owner of http://www.TheCastleCourt.com, a two-year old website that specializes in medieval and renaissance-era historical replicas of weapons, costumes and various other accessories. They also have a growing selection of Chinese and Japanese artifacts, as well as replicas for period films like "300" and "Lord of the Rings."
"This website started with my love of Shakespeare and history," said Little. "Many great things come from the history of Europe, as well as the histories of Rome and Greece. Obviously much of our modern philosophy and government were all influenced by those periods of time."
TheCastleCourt.com boasts a large catalog with various artifacts and gifts from European history and the times of the Romans and the Greeks. As the holiday season draws closer, Little plans on adding several new items to her website.
"I'm constantly adding new products to the line, such as historical figures that are relevant," Little explained. "I'm getting some additional costumes and before Christmas, I'll get a line of gothic and English jewelry. They make really great gifts."
In addition to the new items that will soon appear in her catalog, Little has also launched a new corresponding blog, http://www.MedievalWeaponInfo.com. "In college, I studied the Crusades, so I plan on writing about the people involved in the Crusades," said Little. "I'm also going to be covering the Renaissance, and a series on the Vikings, the Celts and the Romans. The Romans conquered the world with a pair of sandals and a shovel, essentially, I think that's really interesting."
With her blog in place for people who want to learn about significant historical events, Little also insists that the items on her site can also be used for educational purposes and encourages parents that just because she has weapons doesn't mean they are there for the purpose of hurting people:
"If you buy a child a safe, toy sword, there's still a history behind it. What better way to involve a child than to get them to learn about history?" asked Little.
