costumingAre you curious about the clothing styles popular during the reign of Queen Elizabeth I or what the Vikings might have worn as they explored new lands? The Society provides a venue to satisfy your curiosity about these eras and all the times in between. Members wear garb, as their clothing is commonly called, from all regions touched by pre-17th-century Europe. They generally make their own garb, or for those who prefer not to sew, commission it from skilled tailors and seamstresses. Besides, where else can you see a Benedictine monk having lunch with a Norseman and a German Landsknecht?

If you are interested in historic costuming or would like more information, please contact the Minister of Arts & Sciences.
