Daily Life by Kathy Elgin
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This excellent series provides a fascinating look at Tudor history through the plays and poetry of William Shakespeare. Daily Life in Shakespeare's time was very different from today. Marriages were mostly arranged by parents, and many children did not survive childhood. Meals could be enormous - up to a dozen courses, and bear-baiting was a popular entertainment. This book is all about daily life in Tudor times, with information on houses, servants, clothing, school, and many other topics.
