This chapter sums up the key findings of this study on household entertainment in England during the early Tudor period. The study of early Tudor household revels is very challenging because the available documents are very limited and because the techniques of early Tudor performers and performances have changed so drastically that they seem to have disappeared altogether from contemporary theatrical theory. However, their influence was not totally lost. There is now a trend towards the preservation of the connection between minstrel and disguiser in ballet and renewed critical interest in iconography and the interpretations of signs and allegory in semiology.
