An insider’s look into the daily life of someone living in the Tudor period.
This volume is a writer’s dream research volume come to life. Focusing not only on the wealthy (which is what most research texts do), this book goes into every day details of those from every corner of society, much of which corrects many of the misconceptions about the period (such as “they were dirty”) and sheds light on the origins of well-known phrases such as “sleep tight”. This book will astonish you with its depth and first hand knowledge, as Ms. Goodman is a historian who has gone to great lengths to experience the Tudor period first hand. From food to sleeping arrangements, clothing to farming techniques, education and leisure activities, this is an unprecedented look inside the life of someone who lived during the reign of the Tudors. Highly recommended!
