I’m finally able to get back to the mapping project. Ninety records entered (1583-1588). Some further observations:

1583:

  • 6 Civic venue type¬†
  • 1 Ecclesiastical
  • 2 Court
  • 2 Inn
  • 2 Private residence
  • 1 University (dismissal)
  • 11 Unknown venue
  • TOTAL # PERFORMANCES = 25 (needs further work)

1584:

  • 6 Civic venues
  • 1 Court venue
  • 2 Ecclesiastical venues
  • 1 private
  • 6 Unknown
  • TOTAL # PERFORMANCES = 17

1585:

  • 4 Civic
  • 1 Ecclesiastical
  • TOTAL # PERFORMANCES = 5

1586:

  • 11 Civic
  • 1 Ecclesiastical
  • 1 Private
  • TOTAL # PERFORMANCES = 13

1587:

  • 12 Civic
  • 3 Ecclesiastical
  • 1 Private
  • 1 University
  • TOTAL # PERFORMANCES = 17

1588:

  • 12 Civic
  • 2 Private
  • TOTAL # PERFORMANCES = 14

So a quick snapshot of this preliminary sample shows that of records that identify venue type, from 1583-1588 Civic performances become the predominant staple of Queen’s Men touring, by 1588 accounting for 12 of 14 performance records.

Next steps:

  1. Dig into 1583 to find out about the unknown locations
  2. Consider reasons why 1585 shows such a profound drop
  3. Find more records!
