Want to read the only available recipe book of early middle Age? You find the full text here (Anthimus, de observatione Ciborum). And should you want to see the manuscript, you can do it here. The greek doctor Anthimus writes this letter for the barbarian (frank) king Theuderik I: an early attempt to educate meat-eater barbarian population of central europe with mediterranean wisdom.

Cappella Palatina Palermo (XIII centrury), ceiling with dancers. See here more on the “musical paintings” of Cappella Palatina. Listen here Tammuriddara (a modern reproduction based on “Troparium de Catania” XII century)
Bernart de Ventadorn is amongst the most famous “trobadours” of XII century. His poetry and music influenced all the production of the XIII century. Find here the link to all his known songs complete with lyrics and music

This is the most ancient complete “love song” that we can listen in italian language. It dates back between 1180 and 1220, a century before Dante. A document containing both words and music has been recently discovered in Milan and is named “Papiro Ravennate”. You can hear a full rencostruction of music and sound here and see here a discussion (in italian) on the importance of this discovery. You can read the full lyric here.
