Culture of England in the 1600s
Transcript of Culture of England in the 1600s
By Javon Edwards
What were the clothing styles?
Western European clothing is characterized by the disappearance of the ruff in favor of broad lace or linen collars. Men wore the silhouette, which was close to the body with tight sleeves and had a softened, low pointed waist until around 1615. Women wore fashionable bodices that had either high rounded necklines or extremely low rounded necklines, and short wings at the shoulders. Separate closed cartwheel ruffs were worn. Long sleeves were worn with deep cuffs to match the ruff.(aparrel)
What was the music?
The Baroque period saw the creation of tonality. During the period, composers used more elaborate musical decorations, made changes in musical notation, and developed new techniques for playing instruments. Baroque music expanded the size, range, and difficulties of instrumental performances, and as a result established opera, cantata, oratorio, concerto, and sonata as musical genres. This music style ended in the 1700s.(baroque music)
What was the education like?
Boys usually went to a nursery school called a petty school first then moved onto grammar school when they were about seven.In the 16th century many children learned to read and write a hornbook. It was a wooden board with a handle, on the board a sheet of paper with the alphabet and the Lord's prayer written on it. For girls in a rich family a tutor usually taught them at home. In a middle class family their mother might teach them. However lower class girls were not educated.

Were there any sports?
The main sports were archery, jousting, fencing and horse racing. Archers stood and shot at small, large, and even moving targets. Archery could be used to win the heart of a women rather than at war. Jousts were made of two men that sat on horses charging at each other with a pole. Whoever knocked the other off the horse would win. Jousting awards after a win could be armour, weapons, and even the horses. Fencing was just like jousting but without horses had it's own sets of rules like you must wear a mask. Horse racing track could be a 400 meter round track or a straight 100 or 200 meter track.

What was the housing like?
In the early 17th century furniture for the wealthy was plain and heavy, usually made of oak. In the late 17th century furniture for the wealthy was made of walnut or mahogany. One new way in decoration was veneering. (Thin pieces of expensive wood were laid over cheaper wood). Wood was carved out. The hollow was filled in with mother of pearl. Pieces of furniture were coated with lacquer in bright colors. In the Middle Ages poor people's homes were usually made of wood. In the late 16th and early 17th centuries, many were built or rebuilt in stone or brick. By the late 17th century even the poor lived in houses made of brick or stone. (A History of Homes)
