Peachey, Stuart.


Also titled “Secular Festivals and Feasts of the common man 1550 – 1660”. Part of the “Early 17th Century Food Series”. “In the period under consideration England was an overwhelmingly agricultural society. This work attempts to provide a guide to the communal celebrations of the labourers and farmers of the period, especially the activities, decorations and good. In identifying both customs and foods that continue and those that have been lost it by implication disposes of practices such as hot cross buns, pace egging and mummers plays which do not appear until more recent times.”
