Welcome to my new blog about Elizabethan-era punk. I am fascinated with just about everything from the mid-to-late 1500s. Just think about what was happening at the time in:
  • Music - opera was first performed in Florence, Italy.
  • Science - the scientific method was being developed by Francis Bacon, the earth was shown to go around the sun, among other things.
  • Technology - the galleon was perfected, allowing for much longer ocean voyages, the first prototype telescope was invented.
  • Politics & Government - the Spanish Inquisition and the design of the British Empire!
  • Fashion - ruffs! 
And that's just a small set of examples. That era is rich, and largely unexplored from a popular culture standpoint. So jump on-board the galleon and let's sail!
