An entertaining and informative guide to the everyday routines of people in the Tudor period. Through their palaces and homes, Alison Sim illuminates the lives of Tudors, from noblemen to ordinary workers and servants.

Our nation is a treasury of outstanding palaces and fine merchant houses from this rich period in our past. The Tudor period is one that feels familiar to many of us with famous monarchs such as Henry VIII and Elizabeth I, but we perhaps are not as familiar with the everyday life of the era.

Here we uncover what these remarkable buildings can tell us about Tudor lives and times. Alison Sim's guide explores noble to ordinary households, how Tudors cared for their homes, and their daily routines including diet, health and entertainment.

This is an informative and entertaining look at the daily reality of life in the Tudor period, from the wealthiest families to the humblest of households. Colour photographs of palaces and homes, accompanied by contemporary portraits and woodcuts give a fascinating insight into the everyday life of the Tudors.

Contains a list of related places to visit, including many National Trust properties, and a glossary of key terms used within the guide.
