Hi! Okay, so this is going to sound weird, but I was wondering if you know if glue existed in the Middle Ages. I am writing a story set in that period and one of the characters broke a porcelain box so I need to know if it's possible to fix it or not. Sorry for the weird question, and thanks in advance!

Hi! Thanks for writing and it’s not weird at all. I love helping writers and illustrators.

The thing is, you might have more problems with the box itself, than the glue. Many types of glue existed. I found this great piece of writing about it. Medieval Glues Up to 1600 CE. Very useful table at the beginning.

Now - unless your character is in China, they are highly unlikely to have a porcelain box. This material started being imported in Europe only in the 16th century and even then it was very expensive. For the sake of the story, you could go with any earthenware. It was a lot more common.

I’d love to read the story once it’s finished. If you have any other questions, I’d be more than glad to help.
