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...
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...
Cavaliers, Puritans, and Louis XIV, what century could be more exciting than the 17th? In this episode of The Ultimate Fashion History, we'll look at Early Baroque male and female attire, clothing of The Puritans, the High Baroque style of the Court of Louis XIV, the sumptuous and sexy Restoration, and finally, the swift change of silhouette as the century drew to a close.

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...
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

The Thirty Years' War (1618--1648) was a series of wars principally fought in Central Europe, involving most of the countries of Europe. It was one of the longest and most destructive conflicts in European history, and one of the longest continuous wars in modern history. The origins of the conflict and goals of the participants were complex, and no single cause can accurately be described as the main reason for the fighting. Initially, it was fought largely as a religious war between Protestantism and Catholicism in the Holy Roman Empire, although disputes over internal politics and the balance of power within the Empire played a significant part. Gradually, it developed into a more general conflict involving most of the great powers of the time. In this general phase the war became les...
Please support us at: https://www.patreon.com/capandball Here are some of my reenactor friends with Bálint Morlin in command. They are demonstrating the standard procedure for firing matchlock and wheelock firearms during the first part of the 30 years war. These guys are just starting the target shooting part of the business, but they already know how to handle these old smokepoles.
In today's episode of Hair History I'm going to tell you everything about trends, rituals and habits in the 17th century, the beginning of the age of enlightenment.

In the beginning
There was no light
No teenage heaven or hell
No songs or voices came from across the outlands
Where oceans are meant to be -- where oceans are meant to be
Oh my God, I feel so alone -- some million lightyears far from home

You can halt your car to get your tickets to the starlite skies, you know...
Ev'rybody wants to come home (what a dream)

Will you join me?
On my way through the eye
up to the light
