Kathy Lynn Emerson - The Writer's Guide to Everyday Life in Renaissance England. PDF

PDF A good general book about life and society in the period (which, in this case,covers from Henry VII through Charles I). It's interesting to see the difference between books like this that are written for historians vs. reenactors vs. writers (which this book is directed towards), specifically, what is glossed over and what is dealt with in more depth. Parts of this book are VERY general, but it's got excllent sections on period disease/medicine and crime/justice (both of which are probably directed at those budding period mystery writers out there). There's also a good bit on period color terms (much more then the usual "goose turd green" and "Spaniard's blood". On the other hand, the section on clothing was extremely brief and the section on witchcraft/prognostication/supernatural seemed tacked on at the end as an afterthought.
