A Cross-Disciplinary Glossary Of Terms For Historical Hobbyists

The folks over at MacGregor Historical Games (purveyors of historical pastimes to reenactors around the world) have assembled the largest reenactor glossary we’ve ever seen.

Evidently they are fortunate enough to travel the world because their glossary includes American and European examples covering a wide range of recreated time periods and reenactment types.

Our favorites include Plastic Privy, Authentitent, Pilgrim Baiting, & Tin Tent.

About T.H. Gray

T.H. Gray is the self-appointed court jester and Dr. Demento for the history museum field. A lifelong museum professional and reenactor, he is a graduate of the prestigious Peale-Barnum Public History Museum Studies Program. Until 2011, when the AHS hired him away, he was on staff at the Benjamin Dover Memorial Museum & Swimming Pool ("Our History is All Wet!"). He remembers when museums were still about history, science, and art. BTW, all of these posts say they are by T.H. Gray because he can't turn off the byline. Credit, when due, is given.
