FEATURES:

Queen's Dress on a Peasant's Budget

Renfaires are an ideal place to immerse oneself in history as represented through fashion and accessories. But finding and acquiring the right garments can be difficult and expensive, especially when trying to dress like nobility. Renaissance Magazine shows you how to assemble and create beautiful, practical, and historically accurate costumes on a budget.

Espionage in England: A Tangled Web

Renaissance Magazine reveals the colorful history of English spycraft beginning in the ninth century when King Alfred the Great, faced with the Danish threat, disguised himself as a bard and infiltrated the court of Guthrum the Dane, to the infamous Babington plot of 1586 to assassinate Queen Elizabeth.

Meerschaum, the White Gold of Turkey

You've seen renfolk puffing on those ornately carved pipes with the portrait heads. The Turks call it luletash, which literally means "pipe stone," but it is most commonly known in the West by its German name, meerschaum, or sea foam. A soft mineral clay comprised of hydrous magnesium silicate, true meerschaum has been mined for over five hundred years in the Anatolian province of Eskisehir.

The Plague of Justinian

It began with a headache. Soon chills and fever developed. During the rule of Byzantine Emperor Justinian I, the bubonic plague swept through the eastern Mediterranean and killed one-quarter of the population. Discover this great pandemic of 541-542 CE that changed the ancient world forever.

Glenlaurel: Ohio's Scottish Country Inn

Renaissance Magazine checks in at Glenlaurel, an authentic Scottish country inn twenty miles southeast of Columbus, Ohio. Guests enjoy Celtic music, bagpipes, gourmet cuisine, poetry readings, and a pint in the Loch Ness Pub.

Carcassonne

There are few places in Europe where you can truly experience a beautifully preserved fourteenth-century walled city, and little that can prepare you for the wonders of the Continent's greatest medieval treat. Go with Renaissance Magazine as they visit this ancient town in southern France that offers towers, turrets, and magic.
