English cittern, circa 1600. A stringed instrument dating from the Renaissance, descended from the Medieval citole, or citole. Its flat-back design was simpler and cheaper to construct than the lute.

BASS VIOL - *1700 German (Hamburg) Bass viol at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London -: "Viols were bowed instruments ranging from treble to bass, but by about 1780 they had been superceded by the violin and cello.
