Interesting notes on the history of tatooing in this essay/study of a mark noted on a body in the writings of Gregory, though the mark itself is not a tatoo.

Thanks to the About.com people for a head's up on this one:

According to the BBC, Brian Moffat at the Soutra Aisle archaeological dig, claims that the monks used bitter vetch as an appetite suppressant, and "there was also evidence that the monks treated cryptosporidium food poisoning with blaeberries, could induce women in difficult childbirth and used hemlock as an anaesthetic in more difficult operations."

Here's another link on the site: http://www.undiscoveredscotland.co.uk/pathhead/soutraaisle/

Apparently it was a hospital, which suggests that there may be some basis in fact. The archaeologist is employed by the local county council, from the looks of it, and I couldn't find any publications by him...

There may be a slight bit more evidence for hemp use in Medieval Europe:

Merlin, M.D., "Archaeological Evidence for the Tradition of Psychoactive Plant Use in the Old World"
Economic Botany: Vol. 57, No. 3, pp. 295–323.

I'll be reviewing the article soon... (as soon as I've finished moving etc.)
