Who's who in Shakespearian Society

Thinking back on his work, Shakespeare might have recalled some of the inspirations he saw in his own society.

Social standing stood out in people's clothes and pastimes.

Starched ruffs and velvet were the latest thing at Queen Elizabeth's court. But they were not a safe option for the "middling sort" of people.

A falcon was also a spectacular accessory, but sometimes simply useful against household pests!
