Subject: 	Elizabethan Dining

Sorry to waste people's time with what may seem a silly question, but 
can anyone tell me when the Elizabethans dined?

If Beatrice comes to tell Benedick 'dinner is ready', is this midday or 
evening?

If it is evening, then presumably the women's gulling scene takes place 
the next day.

Thanks,
Judy Lewis
