One gentle recommended a website
(http://www.s-hamilton.k12.ia.us/antiqua/instrumt.html).  May I also
recommend http://www.gmm.co.uk/ai/.  This is the home of Ancestral
Instruments, a fellow who makes _very_ period bagpipes and other
instruments.  I have purchased one of his hornpipes and just holding it
makes me feel Medieval!
