kids these days are so spoiled
when i was your age we had an animated disney castle intro
and we had to walk uphill both ways to see it
Barefoot, in the snow
Running away from velociraptors
AND WE WERE THANKFUL.

Medieval masons made most of their drawings during construction. Although sketches could be made on parchment or paper, such materials were expensive. Stone could serve as easily, especially on the building site, where it was abundant and close-to-hand. This fragment of a window design from the 13th-century chapel of the Hospital of St John the Evangelist, Cambridge was inscribed onto a stone slab, which was then re-used as building material. It was subsequently revealed during the chapel’s demolition in 1869. The drawing was evidently made to work out the window’s basic design features and to provide a reference for the masons charged with executing the full-scale version. 1: MAA Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology, University of Cambridge
