Subject:        Elizabethan Costuming for Historical Dramas

A friend has asked me whether Elizabethan actors in plays set in ancient
times (Julius Caesar, Timon of Athens, etc.)  wore costumes appropriate
(so far as they knew) to the periods.  I didn't (and don't) know, and
wonder whether any SHAKSPERians might have a ready answer to this
question.
