1650–1700 in Western European fashion - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

1650-1700 in Western European fashion

Fashion in the period 1660-1700 in Western European clothing is characterised by rapid change. Following the end of the Thirty Years' War and the Restoration of England's Charles II, military influences in men's clothing were replaced by a brief period of decorative exuberance which then sobered into the coat, waistcoat and breeches costume that would reign for the next century and a half.

Great Plague of London - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Great Plague of London

The Great Plague (1665-66) was the last major epidemic of the bubonic plague to occur in the Kingdom of England (part of modern-day United Kingdom). It happened within the centuries-long time period of the Second Pandemic, an extended period of intermittent bubonic plague epidemics which began in Europe in 1347, the first year of the " Black Death", and lasted until 1750.

Daniel Defoe - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Daniel Defoe

Daniel Defoe (; c. 1660 - 24 April 1731), born Daniel Foe, was an English trader, writer, journalist, pamphleteer, and spy, now most famous for his novel Robinson Crusoe . Defoe is notable for being one of the earliest proponents of the novel, as he helped to popularise the form in Britain, and, along with others such as Samuel Richardson, is among the founders of the English novel.

Yoni Prior's insight:

This play is based loosely on Defoe's book. Some information about him

Yoni Prior's insight:

A bit dreary, but useful information. For example, clarifies Defoe's relationship to The Plague and The Great Fire - he was a small child (born 1660) so did live through them.
