Re: Tudor bonnets

There was a lengthy exchange of ideas on a sealed knot forum. People came up with a few images but mainly continental or earlier. The consencus of opinion was that there may have been a few around from people who have travelled but not in the numbes I was seeing at the event. Thank you for the imput...

Tudor Bisuits

Can any one reccomend an easy Tudor bisuit recipe that I can bake and take to Flodden? I had thought about Shrewsbury cakes using the 17th century recipe- it has mace in it rather than rose water. Would these be authentic enough?

Re: Tudor bonnets

Yes the bonnets I mean are the round woolen ones with a small brim. The items a few of the women were wearing were a square piece of linen with out an upright collar, that was worn over the shoulders and pinned in the corners as a modesty covering. I have only seen these in tudor portraits and I'm c...

Re: What does the public see?

I have one pair that does for all the periods from medieval to 18th century, mainly as I'm too vain to wear the leather framed ones. My glasses are metal framed but do not have the nose pinchers. I'm sure the frames didn't cost much (my partner got them for me from the states I think) and it cost ab...

Re: Dog types in Medieval/Tudor/Stuart times

I'd love more than one greyhound but I'd have to move and get another car!! The only problem we have found with Mysty is she is fine whilst allowed to sleep on the bed in our tent but when it comes to taking her for a wee walk we struggle to get her out of the tent. We are re socialising her getting...

Re: Dog types in Medieval/Tudor/Stuart times

I work full time and have a greyhound, she is happy sleeping all day. Most re-homing kennels cat test the dogs before they are ready to be re-homed. If you find a good kennel ask them about cats and they will try and match you with a dog that fits with your home life.

For a reasonable stop gap, Anne Laverick makes off the peg corsets that, if I recall are not bank breakers. I don't think she has a web site but I'm sure you could contact her from the TORM web site. I would definatley reccomend cloak and dagger'd for bespoke though. What group are you with? Is ther...
