What was life like for ordinary people in Tudor times?

To answer this question, renowned 'method historian' Ruth Goodman has slept, washed and cooked as the Tudors did. She is your expert guide to this fascinating era, drawing on years of practical historical study to show how our ancestors coped with everyday life.

Using a vast range of sources, she takes the reader back to the time when soot was used to toothpaste and the 'upper crust' of bread was reserved for the rich.

Every purchase you make supports the work of Shakespeare's Globe. Thank you!
