Tablets in the good old days

. Since vellum and linen paper were difficult to make, wax tablets were used for temporary writing in the Middle Ages. They were especially useful for students, who could use them to jot down notes quickly during their lectures, so we often hear about them in this context.

the author then goes on to write how to make one.

slate tablets and chalk are another way that was used when paper was expensive.
