Links and Resources

We provide a number of links and resources for the benefit of the schools that we work with and for all who want to know more about the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. Of course, we think that the best way to find out more about our times is to engage us to perform, or buy a copy of our book, Coffers, Clysters, Comfey and Coifs: the lives of our seventeenth century ancestors, which contains extensive lists that suggest further reading and useful websites. We also post links to articles and relevant websites on our Facebook page.
