Compiled by Maggie Pierce Secara, who has for twelve years acted as the Countess of Southampton at the Renaissance Pleasure Faire, and designed by Paula Katherine Marmor, this site offers fragments from the social history of Elizabethan England. The compendium bills itself as a sort of primer for the tidbits of life that should be common knowledge to writers or (re-en)actors "who work and play in the 16th Century on a regular basis." If you keep bees, for example, you should know that bees love gossip, and it's good luck to tell them all of the latest news. Just about anyone with an interest in social history will find some of the "fact bites" here intriguing. The useful appendices include Maps & Plans, Bibliography, The Tudor Succession, and a list of Related Sites. The compendium can be browsed or searched online or downloaded as an MS Word or .pdf document.
