If this is your First visit to our site 
please take the time to check out our 
General Information and Disclaimer Page

The Isle of Standauffish Renaissance Guild is mainly focused on the Tudor Years starting with the birth of Henry VII and ending with the death of Henry VIII, though we do cover other areas of interest. Our Tudor re-enactment sector, The Port of Shalott has a set timeline in the years circa 1500.

These pages contain Oil Paintings scans, general information on lifestyles and costuming help. The majority of the research on these pages as well as the scans from books has been done by Lara E Eakins, Tudor Specialist, University of Texas, an Honorary Member of the Guild. Links to her site are provided but it is currently offline.

Other members will also be adding their material as well so, like all our pages, this will be an ongoing work. If you have anything to contribute please contact us so we may include it in our library. Information on joining us can also be found on our main site. Just click "home" below
