Tudor England

The day begins with a two hour talk, usually split in to two sessions of one hour each.
The introduction is entitled, ‘How do we know?’ It explains how and why we use evidence to understand the past, with reference being made to the period being studied.

The rest of the talk encompasses:

•    The land in which they lived; what it was like and how it differs to today
•    How they used to live; their clothes, their weapons, their food, art and literature
•    Dispelling myths and inaccuracies

The afternoon session is entirely practical, the students being split in to four groups, dressed in period costume, then taking part in a round of activities.

These include:

•    Pomander making
•    Artefact handling and drawing
•    Calligraphy with quills and a copybook
•    Pike drill
•    Dancing to 16th century tunes
