  • 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...

  • 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...

    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...

    This new display showcases early seventeenth-century costume in The Burrell Collection. The highlight is an extremely rare crimson silk satin petticoat embroidered with a variety of flowers and birds that will be displayed full-length for the first time. Dating from about 1610-1620, its provenance suggests that it may have belonged to Anne of Denmark, the wife of James VI and I. Other favourites returning to display after conservation work are an embroidered woman's waistcoat together with coifs, nightcaps and sweet bags. New interpretation includes this specially commissioned film looking at how these garments were created and worn. On show now at the Burrell Collection.

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.

English Country Dances - 17Th Century Music From The Publications Of John Playford (David Douglass, Paul O'Dette, Andrew Lawrence-King) Original Release Date: May 10, 1998 Label: harmonia mundi Copyright: (c) 1998 harmonia mundi usa Total Length: 1:17:31 Genres: Classical TRACKLIST: 1 Tom Scarlett 2:59 2 Old Simon The King 3:44 3 Another Divison On A Ground By Mr. John Bannister 9:53 4 Moll Peatly, Or The Old Marinett 2:15 5 The Bear's Dance 4:25 6 Hudson House 1:52 7 Sir Martin Marah's Jigg 2:07 8 Fy Nay, Prithee John! 2:21 9 Paul's Steeple, Or The Duke Of Norfolk 3:34 10 The Glory Of The West 1:37 11 The Mock Glory Of The West 1:53 12 The Glory Of The Sun 4:00 13 Faronell's Division On A Ground 7:26 14 Prelude 1:16 15 Long Cold Nights 7:44 16 Johney Cock Thy Beaver: Scotch Tune To A Ground 2:30 17 Greene-Sleeves 3:47 18 Stingo, Or The Oyle Of Barly 1:09 19 Cockleshells 5:28 20 Another Division On A Ground By Mr. P.B. 3:25 21 The Queen's Jigg 3:58 These selections of English Country Dances from the publications of the English music publisher John Playford are recorded and played so well as to relegate any criticism to spoiled grapes. Perhaps a musicologist might carp on some fine points, but then again probably not - musicologists actually enjoy a good tune, too. There is a nice couple pages of notes by Jack Ashworth on the historical background of the music, and a further short page by David Douglass on how he envisioned the 'nature' of several of the pieces. There is also a French translation following the English notes. Seven instruments are mixed higgledy-piggledy as the performers deem best - a copy of a 1652 Amati Violin, and copies of a Theorbo, a Cittern, a 16-string harp, an Italian Double Harp, an Irish Harp, and a Guitar. For the curious Douglass plays the violin only, but offers playing consanguineous with his name. Among the choices cut 15 - "Long Cold Nights" - seems almost New Age in its evocation of the heavens: one might be in Big Sur looking up at the stars. The many other pieces come in divers moods and tempi, with great care given to which instruments are employed. It's difficult to imagine anyone disliking such engaging tunes, such joy in their making. The recording is of course digital so it helps to have a system capable of taming the inevitable string stridencies, but that said - if you like music from this period, or are curious, this CD offers a wonderful selection.

This new display showcases early seventeenth-century costume in The Burrell Collection. The highlight is an extremely rare crimson silk satin petticoat embroidered with a variety of flowers and birds that will be displayed full-length for the first time. Dating from about 1610-1620, its provenance suggests that it may have belonged to Anne of Denmark, the wife of James VI and I. Other favourites returning to display after conservation work are an embroidered woman's waistcoat together with coifs, nightcaps and sweet bags. New interpretation includes this specially commissioned film looking at how these garments were created and worn. On show now at the Burrell Collection.
