Type of Clothing

Back then when the Renaissance they used to wear different clothes than what we use today. Women's back then used to wear dresses which were called Middle Class.The women usually sew clothes for their husbands and for their kids.If they wanted to do Upper-Classes clothing they had to buy the items that they needed in order for them to make/create fashion clothes.They needed silk,satin,velvet,and brocade.Back then the people who wanted to wear fancy clothes used to tell women to make it for them.The women had to buy the supplies they needed in order for them to make the fancy clothes for the people who ordered fancy clothes.The women had to buy harvesting thread and they had to buy the best weaving.

This is a picture of the type of Clothes that the Women and Gentleman used to wear back then.


In the Renaissance the people specked the language of France.So when they said Renaissance they really said "rebirth".They thought that the classical Latin written by Vergil,Cicero,or Julius Caesar was much superior to the Church Latin spoken during their own time.They wanted to purify Latin of it's medieval corruptions.In the process of doing so,ironically,they helped to destroy the living Latin in the middle Ages and turned it into the dead language which it is today.


The Renaissance back then ate different food.The type of food that the Renaissance ate was fried turkey leg and they had to kill the turkeys in order for them to eat and give food to their family and their kids.Back then the mans had to work so that they could get the food for their family.The man usually went out there and killed a lot of animals in order for them to eat and with one whole turkey they ate in the whole day.This is a picture of the kind of turkeys that the Renaissance use to eat.
