    Post List of Guilds in Medieval Times

    I was looking for a list of career specialties/areas of research and stumbled on this page. I thought it might be of interest to some, besides myself.

    Excellent find, thanks! Funnily enough I was at the Guild Hall yesterday during my lunch hour as I work about 30 seconds walk away from it. There is a small museum in it which is sponsored by the Guild of Clock makers. Some great stuff there, like a 'wrist watch' which was a small sundial mounted on top of a compass, and John Harrison's No. V (of the Longtitude by Dava Sobel fame). There is also a great public library which I am going to start exploring for medieval / cartography stuff.

    In one portion of my world, there's an federation of cities separated from the rest. Each will have a specialty of research/study.

    There will be a city of writing, of time, of space, of...?

    I'm trying to determine the areas of specialization that would lend themselves most to continued (across many generations) research and improvement.

    Anyone feel like taking a swing at suggestions?

    City of...
    Time
    Space
    Writing
    ....?
