New from Caliver books

It is now over 30 years since the first edition of Old Robin's Foot. In the interim, research has revealed exciting new information, particularly about clothing, and thrown some doubt on the accuracy of previously well-thought-of secondary sources. Of most significance is the publication in 2014 of the 26-volume Clothes of the Common People in Elizabethan and Early Stuart England, which has shed new light on what soldiers of the period might have worn. This second edition of Old Robin brings the research right up-to-date, including major revisions of the text where this seemed necessary. The result is a book presenting all the latest research in the context of Essex's infantry units.
