Entertainment should be added as it was a large part of many people's lives during this time period. I have taken it upon myself to add it in. Watersoftheoasis20:16, 26 February 2007 (UTC) 1. just wanted to add that someone should probably remove that link to "whims" in the sports section. It points to some ominous canadian labor guidelines —Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 22:01, 4 February 2010 (UTC)

What is the current era called? --Daniel C. Boyer17:54, 19 July 2006 (UTC) 1. I see your point, as I would see today as the Elizabethan era as well, and Elizabeth II has reigned a lot longer than Elizabeth I and has seen a lot more events. Jamandell (d69)20:58, 22 August 2006 (UTC) 1. This bugs me as well. The Second Elizabethan Era maybe? 22.214.171.124 (talk) 02:32, 15 July 2009 (UTC) 1.1. It's usually "The New Elizabethan Era". --Old Moonraker (talk) 06:39, 15 July 2009 (UTC) 1. Not to be crass, but since when do eras get named before they end? Romantic era poets did not refer to themselves as "Romantic era poets" for example.Dougjaso (talk) 09:26, 8 March 2013 (UTC)dougjaso
I'm starting to wonder is semi-protection should be requested for this article. It seems relatively besieged with vandals. Thoughts? Vassyana02:21, 31 January 2007 (UTC) 1. Agree. Yes, please. - PKM 03:42, 31 January 2007 (UTC) 1.1. I've put in a request for semi-prot at Wikipedia:Requests_for_page_protection. Vassyana14:16, 31 January 2007 (UTC)
What is the general opinion among Wikipedians re British spelling in an arch-English subject such as this? We have centralized, well-organized and even English colonization in this article. Should that not be changed to centralised, well-organised and colonisation? After all, any British spellings in an article about the United States would be changed in next to no time, wouldn't it? Dieter Simon02:36, 1 March 2007 (UTC) 1. I would support British spelling in this article; would you want to make the changes? - PKM18:14, 10 March 2007 (UTC) (a Californian) 1. 1.1. I would support it as well. --Wirbelwindヴィルヴェルヴィント (talk) 18:34, 10 March 2007 (UTC) 1. 1.1. Manual_of_Style#National_varieties_of_English 1.2. If there is a strong tie to a specific region/dialect, use that dialect. 1.3. I definitely support it, in light of the wiki standards. The undertow23:24, 10 March 2007 (UTC) 1. 1.1. 1.1.1. Have changed back to the British spellings. Dieter Simon01:27, 16 March 2007 (UTC)
Where are the notes at the bottom of the page showing sources??? 1. 1.1. See "See also" and "Further reading" section in article itself. Would appreciate you sign-in name though. Dieter Simon23:17, 6 March 2007 (UTC) 1. 1.1. 1.1.1. They disappeared in a series of edits and restores. I have put them back. - PKM 18:13, 10 March 2007 (UTC)
Hi Chutem, please do not keep moving article to "Elizabethan times", saying readers are more likely to look for "Elizabethan times" than they are for "Elizabethan era". That is already taken care of as you would notice if you searched for "E.t.". It would automatically direct you to "E.e", and you couldn't miss it. Dieter Simon22:53, 27 June 2007 (UTC)
I have added the Armada portrait to be the lead image, as it sums up the "Golden Age" myth quite nicely without a caption. The allegory with mythological "peace & plenty" may not be obvious to modern readers without the caption. - PKM03:32, 6 October 2007 (UTC)
This edit deleted as WP:COPYVIO. It's from "Britain Express" and claimed to be copyright. --Old Moonraker (talk) 13:35, 9 May 2008 (UTC)
I think this article needs a section on Ireland. Inchiquin (talk) 12:26, 14 July 2008 (UTC) Daily Elizabethan Food Consumption for the Lower ClassesThe food eaten daily by the average Lower Class Elizabethan consisted of at least ½ lb. bread, 1 pint of beer, 1 pint of porridge, and 1/4 lb of meat. This would have been supplemented with some dairy products - vegetables were a substantial ingredient of soups. Records show that the daily ration of a food for a Tudor soldier with 2 lb. of beef or mutton with l lb. cheese, l/2 lb. butter, 1.5 lb. bread and 2/3 gallon of beer! It is probably worth pointing out that the the beer had a very low alcohol content! 1. Are there any citations for this information?Dougjaso (talk) 09:27, 8 March 2013 (UTC)dougjaso 1. I dunno, maybe? Sopup1 (talk) 05:47, 3 march 2017 (UTC)Sopup1

The Victorian era and the early twentieth century idealised the Elizabethan era. The Encyclopædia Britannica still maintains that "The long reign of Elizabeth I, 1533-1603, was England's Golden Age...'Merry England,' in love with life, expressed itself in music and literature, in architecture, and in adventurous seafaring." This idealising tendency was shared by Britain and an Anglophilic America. (In popular culture, the image of those adventurous Elizabethan seafarers was embodied in the films of Errol Flynn.) In response and reaction to this hyperbole, modern historians and biographers have tended to take a far more literal-minded and dispassionate view of the Tudor period. Elizabethan England was not particularly successful in a military sense during the period. The grinding poverty of the rural working class, which comprised 90 percent of the population, has also received more attention than in previous generations. The Elizabethan role in the slave trade and the repressi...
Lacking a dominant genius or a formal structure for research (the following century had both Sir Isaac Newton and the Royal Society), the Elizabethan era nonetheless saw significant scientific progress. The astronomers Thomas Digges and Thomas Harriot made important contributions; William Gilbert published his seminal study of magnetism, De Magnete, in 1600. Substantial advancements were made in the fields of cartography and surveying. The eccentric but influential John Deealso merits mention. Much of this scientific and technological progress related to the practical skill of navigation. English achievements in exploration were noteworthy in the Elizabethan era. Sir Francis Drake circumnavigated the globe between 1577 and 1581, and Martin Frobisher explored the Arctic. The first attempt at English settlement of the eastern seaboard of North America occurred in this era—the abortive colony at Roanoke Islandin 1587. While Elizabethan England is not thought of as an age of technologic...
It has often been said that the Renaissance came late to England, in contrast to Italy and the other states of continental Europe; the fine arts in England during the Tudor and Stuart eras were dominated by foreign and imported talent—from Hans Holbein the Younger under Henry VIII to Anthony van Dyck under Charles I. Yet within this general trend, a native school of painting was developing. In Elizabeth's reign, Nicholas Hilliard, the Queen's "limner and goldsmith," is the most widely recognized figure in this native development; but George Gower has begun to attract greater notice and appreciation as knowledge of him and his art and career has improved.
There were many different types of Elizabethan sports and entertainment: Feasts 1. A large, elaborately prepared meal, usually for many persons and often accompanied by court entertainment. Often celebrated religious festivals Banquets 1. A ceremonial dinner honouring a particular guest Fairs 1. The Annual Summer Fair was often a bawdy affair Plays 1. Started as plays enacted in town squares followed by the actors using the courtyards of taverns or inns (referred to as Inn-yards) followed by the first theatres (great open air amphitheatres built in the same style as the Roman Coliseum) and then the introduction of indoor theatres called Playhouses Miracle Plays 1. Re-enactment of stories from the Bible Festivals 1. Celebrating Church festivals Jousts / Tournaments 1. A series of tilted matches between knights Games and Sports 1. Sports and games which included archery, bowling, cards, dice, hammer-throwing, quarter-staff contests, troco, quoits, skittles, wrestling and mob football...
During the Elizabethan era, people looked forward to holidays because opportunities for leisure were limited, with time away from hard work being restricted to periods after church on Sundays. For the most part, leisure and festivities took place on a public church holy day. Every month had its own holiday, some of which are listed below: 1. The first Monday after Twelfth Night of January (any time between January 7 and January 14) was Plough Monday. It celebrated returning to work after the Christmascelebrations and the New Year. 2. February 2: Candlemas. Although often still very cold, Candlemas was celebrated as the first day of spring. All Christmas decorations were burned on this day, in candlelight and torchlight processions. 3. February 14: Valentine's Day. 4. Between March 3 and March 9: Shrove Tuesday (known as Mardi Gras or Carnival on the Continent). On this day, apprentices were allowed to run amok in the city in mobs, wreaking havoc, because it supposedly cleansed the c...Tudor EnglandEnglish RenaissanceElizabethan theatreElizabethan architectureYates, Frances A.
