Daily Life in Elizabethan England

Synopsis

What was life really like for ordinary people in other cultures throughout history? Students, teachers, and interested readers will find, in the curriculum-based Greenwood Press "Daily Life Through History" Series, a wealth of details about daily life, based on current scholarship, that is not available elsewhere. Daily Life in Elizabethan England provides a vivid and intimate account of life in the Elizabethan age. The first book on Elizabethan England to arise out of the "living history" movement, it combines a hands-on approach with the best of current research. Organized for easy reference, it is enlivened with how-to sections - recipes, clothing patterns, songs and games, all gathered from original sources. This hands-on approach re-creates the daily life of ordinary people, not just the aristocracy, and systematically covers the most basic facts of life in a readily accessible format. Clearly illustrated with almost 100 drawings, patterns, and diagrams, it provides a treasure trove of information for classroom and library use and for those interested in re-creating Elizabethan life.
