May 25 2006 Renaissance Newsletter

With the improving weather, I've been thinking about getting out and getting active. It seems that you, my reader, have too! Recently I have been asked for more on entertainment, sports, and other pastimes of the Renaissance.

Here are the latest articles from the Renaissance site at

Sports in the Renaissance
Did sports exist in the Middle Ages and Renaissance? Maybe not in a way that we would recognize, but contests of physical abilities took place even in the darkest of ages.

Renaissance Dance
Dancing was incredibly popular in the Middle Ages and into the Renaissance. Peasants did it, nobles did it (though very differently) adults and children loved to dance.

Keep the requests and ideas moving my way, I thrive on your feedback!

Have fun passing this message along to family and friends, because we all love free knowledge.

Happy History Hunting!
