Website: Renaissance: The Elizabethan World

This site provides a great variety of information about the life and culture of Elizabethan England (my favorite part is their section on Sumptuary Laws mandated who could wear what). Much of their information comes from original sources–documents from Elizabethan England that they have (in many cases) transcribed onto their site. They also have a large number of helpful links to similar sites about England and the Renaissance. Unfortunately, it looks like their site is not regularly updated. This doesn’t seem to have affected the information on the site itself, but some of their links no longer work.
