This comprehensive, interdisciplinary research companion is an essential resource for scholars of early modern history and culture. For the first time a detailed consideration of the scope of early modern popular culture in England is collected in one volume, highlighting the interplay of 'low' and 'high' modes of cultural production. Issues as disparate as reading cultures, games, food and drink, time, textiles, religious belief and festivals are discussed, allowing the authors to examine how popular culture impacted upon the everyday lives and experiences of individuals and groups.
