Description
Bringing history to life: a vividly written ‘travel guide’ to explore life in Elizabethan England. This book captures what you would see, hear and smell on a visit to the cities and countryside of Tudor England. Informative chapters explore fashion, dwellings, society, legal practice, food and drink, health and hygiene, popular foibles and entertainment. Learn the difference between a doublet and a jerkin; why salads are newly fashionable; and the meaning of Tudor names for criminal characters, from a ‘jarkman’ (forger) to a ‘prigger of prancers’ (horse thief). Fully indexed and with historical source notes, plus plate sections with colour and black-and-white illustrations.
