Students may find these sites interesting
if they are particularly interested in the clothing of the time. Students can
then create their characters in the fashion of the time. However, this is one
small learning aspect, and students should feel free to create characters that
capture a "flavor" of the time and move on to other learning experiences.
This WEB site has pictures, paintings
and drawings of clothing of this time period.
