What would your 16th/17th century social status have been?

A bit of lockdown amusement: a group of Early Modernists are engaged on project examining and writing about the everyday cultural lives of the middling sort 1560-1650. They have come up with a Social Status Calculator across the various statuses from ‘new gentry’ to ‘dependent poor’, with some biographies and information about real people in those days.

There’s a piece about furniture by Chris Pickvance too!
