Tudor & Elizabethan

Primary school resources to support the teaching of the Tudors & Elizabethans

‘What were the differences between the lives of rich and poor people in Tudor times?’

During the Tudor period, there was a clear divide between poor Tudors and rich Tudors.

The nobility were the wealthiest people and lived a life of luxury.

Many of the artefacts in the Tudor & Elizabethan collection have been made for re-enactment groups which make them as authentic as possible.
