Getting Clean, the Tudor Way


History

A historian attempts to follow Tudor hygiene with a daily regime of linen underwear.

"Many modern writers have presumed that without hot soapy water being regularly applied to bodies, Tudor England must have been a place inhabited by people who smelt like the long-term homeless. Much play has been made about the difference between beautiful clothes on the surface and an imagined filth and stench on the inside. I would refute that reading of the situation."

Outlander


Book Lovers

I quite enjoy the Outlander costumes and so I follow the costume designer Terry Dresbach on social media to get her insights into the designs.  I love how the story allows her to make her creations between historically accurate with a bit of a modern kick.

Here's an interesting article about the SCAD Exhibit which features Season 4 costumes.

"A pearl and diamond pendant from the late monarch's private collection, which Sotheby's billed as "one of the most important royal jewelry collections ever to come to auction," fetched more than $36 million Wednesday evening in Geneva, Switzerland. The item smashed pre-sale estimates that had valued it between $1 million and $2 million."

Trade Network?


General Discussion

Thanks for starting this conversation, Comtesse.  I'll pass on a notice to the QH Co-op group so that individuals may comment.

Speaking for the group as a whole, we don't have regular times where we congregate.  There's usually a few of us online at any given time of the day (though our avatars may be napping while the typist is pursuing RL activities).

You could always ask at the G&S Market Forum if you are looking for something specific or check out our inworld Market

Would you please post a SLurl for the Magritte Market?

Thanks!

Who burned the witches?


History

When you think about it, this makes perfect sense:

Witch hunts were a collaboration between lower-level authorities and commonfolk succumbing to garden-variety pettiness, vindictiveness, superstition and hysteria. Seen that way, it's a pattern that recurs over and over again in various forms throughout human history, whether or not an evil international church or a ruthless patriarchy is involved, in places as different as Seattle and Rwanda.
