  • Simple living 101: what can be learnt from a 17th century town

    In Plymouth, Massachusetts- site of the colony built by the Mayflower passengers - Matteo Brault spends his days living a 17th century life, along with dozens of other re-enactors on the modern-day Plimoth Plantation. Brault works full-time as a 17th-century style blacksmith, using traditional tools like a grindstone, hand-made nails and a large bellows for making the fire hot enough for forging iron and steel. He also helps build the traditional shelters. The simplest homes in town were built using cratchets- natural forks in trees- as support for the ridgepole of the roof. The walls are built up with “wattle”- small sticks for the lattice structure- and “daub”- a mortar of clay, earth and grasses. Instead of using the traditional English lime wash to protect the walls, the colonists too...

  • 17th-century dress recovered from shipwreck

    In August 2014, the Texel Diving Club recovered a box filled with perfectly preserved clothing from a 17th-century shipwreck under the sands of the Wadden Sea near the island of Texel off the coast of North Holland. A silk damask gown in near-perfect condition was recovered along with a jacket, silk bodices woven with gold and silver thread and silk knee socks. Other artifacts were recovered from the shipwreck such as Italian pottery, a silver gilt vessel, a red velvet pouch embroidered with silver thread that contained a two-sided lice comb made of cow horn, pomanders (spheres with pleasant-smelling contents to offset foul odors) and a number of leather book covers. One of them is stamped in gold with the coat of arms of King Charles I. Historians believe that the lady who wore this lavis...

  • Cannon Gunnery - early 17th Century

    A very good study of the period procedures in loading, firing and deployment of these pieces. It shows the textbook use of round shot, bar shot and even hot shot. This will come as a breath of fresh air to those of you like myself that cannot stand seeing exploding shells fired out of pre Shrapnel era cannons (I say that and I acknowledge that shells were fired from howitzers and mortars). If anyone is puzzled by the hot shot aftermath...its because they aimed for the powder magazine and successfully set it on fire. It is very apparent that a master gunner was at the scene and consulted in the details. This is apparent in everything from the use of wadding, pricking of the powder bag, the method by which the linstock was kept burning and the line written in chalk on the improvised gun to a...

  • The Thirty Years' War (1618--1648)

    The Thirty Years' War (1618--1648) was a series of wars principally fought in Central Europe, involving most of the countries of Europe. It was one of the longest and most destructive conflicts in European history, and one of the longest continuous wars in modern history. The origins of the conflict and goals of the participants were complex, and no single cause can accurately be described as the main reason for the fighting. Initially, it was fought largely as a religious war between Protestantism and Catholicism in the Holy Roman Empire, although disputes over internal politics and the balance of power within the Empire played a significant part. Gradually, it developed into a more general conflict involving most of the great powers of the time. In this general phase the war became les...

The walls are built up with “wattle”- small sticks for the lattice structure- and “daub”- a mortar of clay, earth and grasses. Instead of using the traditional English lime wash to protect the walls, the colonists took advantage of the plentiful wood in the America and created clapboard siding by cleaving wood into thin boards. For the thatch roofs, large bundles of water reed or wheat straw are woven with a giant needle by two people working in tandem (one outside and one inside). “It’s like a giant quilt made of grass,” explains Brault, “which makes a water-tight roof that essentially acts as a giant sponge. It absorbs water and laps it off.” The Plimoth Plantation is open to visitors from March through November. The site also has a native Wampanoag homesite (we will tour in a separate video). http://www.plimoth.org/what-see-do/17th-century-english-village

One of them is stamped in gold with the coat of arms of King Charles I. Historians believe that the lady who wore this lavish wardrobe was likely the Scottish lady-in-waiting Jean Kerr, Countess of Roxburghe the confidante of English Queen Henrietta Maria. Experts on the English House of Stuart found a letter written on March 17, 1642, from Princess Elizabeth Stuart, who mentioned that her sister-in-law Henrietta's baggage ships had gone down, carrying vessels from her private chapel, as well as the clothing of her ladies-in-waiting. The collection serves as a kind of time capsule that reveals the clothing tastes of the elite of the period.

The Thirty Years' War (1618--1648) was a series of wars principally fought in Central Europe, involving most of the countries of Europe. It was one of the longest and most destructive conflicts in European history, and one of the longest continuous wars in modern history. The origins of the conflict and goals of the participants were complex, and no single cause can accurately be described as the main reason for the fighting. Initially, it was fought largely as a religious war between Protestantism and Catholicism in the Holy Roman Empire, although disputes over internal politics and the balance of power within the Empire played a significant part. Gradually, it developed into a more general conflict involving most of the great powers of the time. In this general phase the war became less specifically religious and more a continuation of the Bourbon--Habsburg rivalry for European political pre-eminence, leading in turn to further warfare between France and the Habsburg powers. A major impact of the Thirty Years' War was the devastation of entire regions, denuded by the foraging armies (bellum se ipsum alet) (English: The war will feed itself). Famine and disease significantly decreased the population of the German states and Bohemia, the Low Countries, and Italy, and most of the combatant powers were bankrupted. While the regiments within each army were not strictly mercenary, in that they were not guns for hire that changed sides from battle to battle, the individual soldiers that made up the regiments often were. The problem of discipline was made more difficult by the ad hoc nature of 17th-century military financing; armies were expected to be largely self-funding, by means of loot taken or tribute extorted from the settlements where they operated. This encouraged a form of lawlessness that imposed severe hardship on inhabitants of the occupied territory. The Thirty Years' War was ended with the treaties of Osnabrück and Münster, part of the wider Peace of Westphalia. Some of the quarrels that provoked the war went unresolved for a much longer time. Gustavus Adolphus of Sweden Gustav II Adolf (9 December 1594 -- 6 November 1632 AD) has been widely known in English by his Latinized name Gustavus Adolphus Magnus and variously in historical writings also as Gustavus, or Gustavus the Great, or Gustav Adolph the Great (Swedish: Gustav Adolf den store, a formal distinction passed by the Swedish Parliament in 1634). He was King of Sweden (1611--1632) and founder of the Swedish Empire (or Stormaktstiden -- "the era of great power") at the beginning of the Golden Age of Sweden. He led his nation to military supremacy during the Thirty Years War, helping to determine the political as well as the religious balance of power in Europe. He is thereby regarded as one of the greatest military commanders of all time. His most notable military victory was the battle of Breitenfeld. With a superb military machine with good weapons, excellent training, and effective field artillery, backed by an efficient government which could provide necessary funds, Gustavus Adolphus was poised to make himself a major European leader, but he was killed at the battle of Lützen in 1632. He was assisted by Axel Oxenstierna (1583--1654), leader of the nobles who also acted as regent after his death. He was known by the epithets "The Golden King" and "The Lion of the North" by neighboring sovereigns. Gustavus Adolphus is commemorated today with city squares in Stockholm, Gothenburg and Helsingborg. Gustavus Adolphus College, a Lutheran college in St. Peter, Minnesota is also named for the Swedish king.
