Brief look at Tudor life
on 17 November 2013
A little guide to Tudor England, looks at life across all social strands from the nobility to the commoner. Clothing, health and food are all covered along with the monarchs themselves and those who worked for them.
Although I guess this is just an overview on the subject (brought out for the Chrsitmas market) it's a little too brief at times, the black and white illustrations are dull and I really disliked the harsh comments about the Plantagenets. Some of the information was interesting but they are a number of books available that pack more of a punch.
On the positive side, the book is nicely packaged, good cover and the chapters do flow together well, just a shame that the content wasn't a bit more detailed.
