What did a Tudor man wear under his doublet & hose? What was the show-stopping centrepiece at a royal Tudor wedding? Why did everyone, from the king downwards, fear the 'sweating sickness'? The Tudors may have been a comparatively short-lived dynasty, lasting 118 years between 1485 & 1603, but during that time they made a lasting impression. The Little Book of the Tudors explores all aspects of life in the Tudor age from life at court to the day-to-day activities at the teeming taverns & plague-ridden cities of the Tudor kingdom. With a glimpse at the people, palaces & pastimes of the age, some amusing secrets of the Tudor medicine cabinet & closet, & stories from some of the most fabulous, eccentric & opulent entertainments of the age, this 'little book' will delight anyone with an interest in Tudor history.
