Description:
Much has been written about the lives of the Tudors, but it is sometimes difficult to see their world through their eyes. Using the five senses, Amy Licence presents a new perspective on the material culture of the past, exploring the Tudor's relationship with the fabric of their existence, from the clothes on their back, the roofs over their heads and the food on their tables, to the wider questions of how they interpreted and presented themselves, and their beliefs about life, death and beyond. This book helps recapture the past: what were the Tudor's favourite perfumes? How did the weather affect their lives? What sounds from the past have been lost? Take a journey back 500 years, to experience the Tudor world as closely as possible, through sight, sound, smell, taste and touch.
