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...

One of Europe's most well-preserved 17th century mummies has been discovered in Lund, Sweden. Researchers at Lund University now hope it will shed some light on the medical and historical mysteries of everyday life in the 1600s. Photo of Peder Winstrup: Gunnar Menander
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...

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.

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...

The basic idea of The General Crisis is that, for about a century, beginning in the early 17th century, the world experienced a tremendous change that rocked the traditional power-structure to its core, reformulating it in a new and significant way. This is the distinguishing factor of world-revolutions. Power gets reconstituted throughout the world. ------------------------------------------------------------ Check out Step Back History: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCxTdWpLJurbGlFMWOwXWG_A My episode on the end of Sakoku: https://youtu.be/VGHT2yn9cwM ------------------------------------------------------------ references: Perry Anderson, _Passages from Antiquity to Feudalism_ (UK: Verso, 1974) 197-209.
