TIME TRAVELLER'S GUIDE TO ELIZABETHAN ENGLAND, THE

Synopsis

What was it actually like to live in Elizabethan England? If you could travel to the past and walk the streets of London in the 1590s, would you really have a sense of it being a glorious age? And if so, how would that glory sit alongside the vagrants, diseases, violence, sexism and famine of the time? Ian Mortimer answers the key questions that a visitor to late sixteenth-century England would ask.
